Beating with stick leads to LR arrest
A 56-year-old man with a stick severely injured a man during an argument over a stolen bike in Little Rock, police say.
Stephen Shipley of Little Rock was arrested around 11 a.m. Monday in the 6200 block of Colonel Glenn Road, according to a Little Rock Police Department report.
Authorities say Shipley confronted a 49-year-old man for stealing his bike and began hitting him with a stick.
The man was taken to CHI St. Vincent Infirmary in Little Rock for injuries that included a “severe laceration,” the report states.
Three witnesses said they saw Shipley hitting the 49-yearold multiple times.
Shipley, who faces a charge of second-degree battery, remained at the Pulaski County jail as of Tuesday in lieu of $15,000 bond, records show.
