EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. - The Madison County State's Attorney's Office charged a Granite City man Monday for allegedly attacking his mother and another family member with a baseball bat.
According to court documents, police officers responded to a report of an injured woman in the 2400 block of Delmar on Saturday, August 2. The victim, a 76-year-old woman, had suffered head injuries. Another victim, 38, had injuries to his head and body.
A nine-year-old child at the residence, the son of the 38-year-old victim, was unharmed.
