One suspect is alleged to have struck the victim in the head at least twice with a metal baseball bat, critically injuring him and knocking him to the ground. $45.00 in cash was stolen from the victim before the two left the scene.
Investigators tell KBKW the victim was able to make his way to his vehicle and drive himself across the street to the Bayshore Grocery where he was discovered by passers-by who called law enforcement. The victim is currently being treated at St. Peters Hospital in Olympia and is listed in critical condition.
Investigators located the suspects at a residence in Lake Limerick Tuesday. Both were arrested just after 5:00PM. Both have made their first court appearance in this case and remain in jail on $350,000 and $250,000 bail respectively.
