Police charged a suspect who reportedly struck two victims multiple times with a baseball bat outside of a convenience store Wednesday night.
Officers responded to the incident around 10:09 p.m. Wednesday at Stripes, 1300 E. Eighth St., according to an Odessa Police Department news release.
Upon arrival, police made contact with the suspect, 23-year-old Brandon Ramirez, who was found to be in possession of a gold Omaha baseball bat.
The release detailed that Ramirez and the two victims, a 24-year-old man and a 23-year-old woman, reportedly got into an argument, and Ramirez struck the victims multiple times with the bat. The man was hit on his left forearm and the woman was hit on her right knee. OPD Spokesman Steve LeSueur said the woman was taken to Medical Center Hospital.
Ramirez was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony.
Jail records show Ramirez was taken to the Ector County Detention Center Thursday and was released the same day on a $50,000 bond.
