James John Duncan Jr, 44 of Rome, was arrested this week after reports said he beat his stepson over the head with a baseball bat.

Police said that the victim suffered a laceration and swelling to his head and forearm.

Officers added that when they arrived to his home, Duncan gave them a fake name in order to avoid arrest.

The attack occurred back on May 4th at a home on Morrison Campground Road.

Duncan is charged with aggravated assault and giving false information to police.
