TOLEDO (WTOL) - According to Toledo Police, 16-year-old Marcus Bailey Jr. was attacked with a baseball bat by three men in east Toledo on Saturday.

Crews responded to the 700 block of Main Street for an assault with injuries just before 8 p.m.

When police arrived on scene, the teen was on the ground and unresponsive.

Witnesses say that the victim and three friends were approached by people in a white Jeep Patriot.

Three men got out of the vehicle, went up to the teen and took a baseball bat from his hands.

One of the men then struck the victim in the back of the head with the bat.

The suspects got back into their vehicle and fled the scene, heading toward Nevada.

Marcus was transported by Life Squad to Mercy St. Vincent’s Hospital.

His mother, Shelly, tells us that Marcus is in critical, but stable condition.

OUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS Go out to Sophomore Marcus Bailey and his family as he recovers from the weekend incident.
