We have charged two people for a series of offences following an altercation where it was reported a woman was hit around the head with a baseball bat.
They have been charged after reports of disorder in Moorland Crescent in Lincoln on July 14, where a man in his 40s was reportedly hit with a baseball bat and a snooker cue. He sustained an injury to his arm. A woman in her 30s is reported to have intervened and was then reportedly hit around the head with a baseball bat causing an injury to her head. Both received treatment at hospital.
Danny Clawson, 35, of Stewards Way, Lincoln, has been charged with possession of a pointed article in a public place, possession of an offensive weapon in a private place, wounding with intent, and attempted grievous bodily harm (GBH).
Christopher Clawson, 59, of the same address, has been charged with wounding with intent, attempted grievous bodily harm (GBH), possession of an offensive weapon in a public place, and failing to provide a specimen.
Both have been remanded in custody and are due to appear at Lincoln Magistrates’ Court today.
The incident happened at 4.25pm on Thursday 14 July, and the two suspects were in custody within hours of the offence. The people involved were known to each other and this was an isolated incident.
Our investigation is continuing, and we are keen to hear from anyone who may have been in the Moorland Crescent area at around 4.10 to 4.40pm on 14 July and may have witnessed the incident, or have footage on their mobile phones. Any details or footage you can share will help our investigation.
