POLICE ROUNDUP: London man struck by baseball bat

LAUREL COUNTY — A London man who awakened to find personal belongings missing ended up getting struck in the head with a baseball bat, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Root said Deputy Robbie Grimes continues his investigation into the assault which happened Wednesday at Sweet Hollow Apartments south of London.

Jeffery Dale Robbins, 50, was transported to Baptist Regional Medical Center by Ambulance Inc. of Laurel County.

He told deputies he was asleep, and when he woke up some of his things were missing.

He lives with his sister and brother-in-law, who were in the home at the time the items were reported missing.

According to Root, an argument ensued over the missing items, and as Robbins was attempting to leave, he was struck over the head with the bat.

The investigation continues.

Out-of-control juvenile in custody

A 16-year-old reported to be “out of control” was taken into custody by a court-designated worker Wednesday.

Laurel County Sheriff John Root said Deputy Robbie Grimes and Senior Sgt. Greg Poynter took the male juvenile into custody at 10:19 p.m. after being dispatched to a complaint of an out-of-control juvenile on Oneal Road, west of London.

Upon arrival Grimes and Poynter learned the juvenile became angry and pulled a knife on a resident at the home. He also allegedly threatened to kill persons in the home as they slept. The argument was reportedly over a marijuana plant found in the juveniles’ room, which an adult resident of the house found and flushed down the toilet.
