Temecula man struck with baseball bat, recovering from injuries

TEMECULA - A 20-year-old Temecula man was recovering today from injuries suffered in an attack perpetrated by a baseball bat-wielding suspect who remains at large.

The near-deadly assault happened about 11 p.m. Sunday in Kent Hintergardt Park, 45125 Via Del Coronado, according to the Riverside County Sheriff's Department.

A man told deputies he had gone to the location to a rendezvous with a woman but instead encountered a man carrying a bat, who confronted him as he waited in the park.

The victim was struck multiple times but remained conscious and managed to reach his car after the attack. He drove home and was taken to Rancho Springs Medical Center in Murrieta by family members, according to sheriff's officials.

Investigators do not believe the assailant randomly attacked the victim. However, no other details were released.

Anyone with information was urged to call the sheriff's Temecula station at (951) 696-3000.
