Two men are accused of attacking a Mentor man with baseball bats after he failed to pay a debt.
Victor Liggett-Paris, 27, of Mentor, and Levi Cruz, 26, of Chardon, visited the victim Monday afternoon at his home in the apartment complex at 6400 Center St., Mentor Police Lt. Tim Allen said.
The suspects told police that they were collecting money for a computer job they did, Allen said.
Liggett-Paris lured the victim -- a 40-year-old man -- out of his apartment, Allen said. Then Cruz and Liggett-Paris hit the man with bats and punched him,he told police.
Next, the man told police that he ran back to his apartment, grabbed his baseball bat and chased Cruz and Liggett-Paris.
The man recognized the suspects so he called Mentor Police and described their car to him.
Officers stopped Cruz and Liggett-Paris' car and arrested them. When they searched the car, they found a baseball bat and some marijuana, Allen said.
Cruz and Liggett-Paris were both charged with felonious assault.
They were arraigned Wednesday morning in Mentor Municipal Court where Judge John Trebets set their bond at $100,000. Neither Cruz nor Liggett-Paris posted bond.
Their next court hearing is scheduled for Oct. 9.
