Police say a request for another drink was met with a bat

GIRARD — Myles Seybert, 46, is charged with felonious assault after police said he struck a man with a baseball bat multiple times Saturday evening.

According to a police report, Seybert told police he and the victim, who he met a week before, had been drinking at Seybert's home in the afternoon. The victim left, but came back around 4:30 p.m. for more alcohol, the report said.

Seybert told police after he refused to give more alcohol and asked the victim to leave, the victim became belligerent, the report said.

The first time Seybert told police the story, he said a woman that lived at the house hit the victim with the bat, but when he was taken to the police station, he admitted to hitting the man, the report said.

A bat was found at his home.

Police had found the victim at about 5:50 p.m that day with blood covering his face in front of the police station and called an ambulance.

Seybert was scheduled to appear in Girard Municipal Court today at 9 a.m.
