Akron resident Jonathan J. Oldham, 29, was arrested and is facing felonious assault charges for allegedly beating a man with an electric bass guitar Sunday.
Akron police say Oldham hit the victim in the head Sunday morning with the guitar. The man was found lying in the devil strip on South Balch Street.
The injured man, who was not identified, was found by police about 11:30, Akron police said. He was taken to Cleveland Clinic Akron General with serious injuries, including a head wound.
He told police he was invited to a work colleague’s home and that the two men were drinking.
According to a police report, the two became involved in a tussle after Oldham asked the man to leave.
At some point during the discord, police say Oldham struck the man with the guitar. According to the report, the injured man then crawled out of the home and was found on the devil strip.
