Man jailed for baseball bat assault

A young man from Paradise was jailed Sunday morning for allegedly taking a baseball bat to two people, sending them to the hospital.

According to Nevada County Sheriff’s records, Greg J. Woodward, 23, was booked into the Wayne Brown Correctional Facility about 5:39 a.m. on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and possession of marijuana.

Bail was set at $25,000 and Woodward was still incarcerated Sunday afternoon.

Details of the case were not available from the Grass Valley Police, but department logs show a 1:37 a.m. disturbance in the 400 block of Brighton St.

Two victims were reported there who had been assaulted with a baseball bat, both hurt, and one with head trauma. They were taken to Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital by ambulance but their names were unavailable.

The Union will report more information as it becomes available from the Grass Valley Police Department.
