The bleeding man said he was hit by another male with a wooden chair. The deputy found a wooden chair in pieces with blood on it. The bleeding man refused medical treatment. An attempt to find the alleged attacker was unsuccessful.

Shortly after the responding deputy left the scene, the man called BCSO to report the alleged attacker damaged his car. The victim said that before the alleged attacker hit him, he heard what he thought was noise from animals. He said he didn’t notice earlier that the car had been damaged.
