Police car lights(Updated at 2:15 p.m.) Arlington County Police are investigating a daytime assault in the Douglas Park neighborhood.

The incident happened just past 11:00 a.m., near the intersection of 16th Street S. and Glebe Road. A man struck his nephew in the head with a baseball bat following a verbal argument, according to police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck.

The victim’s uncle surrendered to police without incident, Sternbeck said. He’s expected to be charged with malicious wounding.
