Teen Charged In Baseball Bat Assault

A 14-year-old is recovering at Pitt County Memorial Hospital after deputies say he was hit by a baseball bat.

Deputies have now charged Lacy Hocutt, Jr. of Raleigh with assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.

The assault happened New Years Day on Robin Lake Drive in Wayne County. Deputies say the 17-year-old suspect was staying with friends in Wayne County, but after the attack moved back home to Raleigh.

Hocutt was developed as a suspect in the attack last week and he was arrested after his mother was notified of the charged against her son.

Hocutt's bond was set at $25,000.
