An Opelika man was beaten with a baseball bat in his home early Thursday morning.
Officers were dispatched to a house on Edwards Road at about 4:30 a.m. and found a man had entered the home through the front door and beaten one of the occupants with a baseball bat, Opelika police Capt. Bill Husky said. The suspect then fled the scene.
Police were not releasing the identity of the victim or the suspect, but Husky said they knew each other.
The victim sustained a broken arm and was transported to the East Alabama Medical Center for treatment.
The case remains under investigation.
