Police: Man swinging sausages attacked Mass. biker

Michael Baker, of Holbrook, was arraigned Monday on charges including assault and battery with a dangerous weapon

The Associated Press

BROCKTON, Mass. — A Massachusetts man has pleaded not guilty to attacking a bicyclist with sausage links and a wrench before making off with jewelry and the bike.

Michael Baker, of Holbrook, was arraigned Monday on charges including assault and battery with a dangerous weapon in connection with the Sunday morning attack. The Enterprise of Brockton reports that Baker's lawyer says his client was trying to defend himself from the alleged victim. Bail was set at $1,000.

The bicyclist tells police the assailant swung the string of sausage links at him before hitting him with the wrench.

Police say Baker was caught a short time later with the bike and a wrench. Police later found that sausages and other food had been stolen from a food stand at the Brockton Fairgrounds.
