AUGUSTA — A city man is facing felony charges after allegedly hitting a man with a baseball bat during a confrontation on Stone Street.

Joseph McInnis, 25, is charged with aggravated assault and criminal threatening, police said. He has since been released from the Kennebec County jail on $2,000 cash bail.

Augusta police Sgt. Christopher Shaw said the victim, Matthew Swift of Augusta, suffered multiple injuries to his head and torso. Swift was taken to MaineGeneral Medical Center in Augusta with injuries that were not believed to be life-threatening.

Shaw said McInnis recently broke up with his girlfriend, though the two continued to keep contact by the telephone until Saturday around 4 p.m., when McInnis spotted the woman at Swift’s home on Glenridge Drive.

Swift and the woman left Swift’s home in a car and McInnis followed, Shaw said. McInnis continued to follow the car onto Stone Street, where both cars stopped at a traffic light. McInnis got out of his car with an aluminum baseball bat, went to the passenger’s side of Swift’s car and began threatening his ex-girlfriend with the bat, Shaw said.

Swift got out of the driver’s seat in an attempt to calm the situation, Shaw said, and McInnis then turned on Swift.

“He hit him with the bat multiple times,” Shaw said.

Swift was conscious and walking when police and rescue arrived, Shaw said.

McInnis was taken to the jail, where he posted bail later that day and was released.
