Avondale man accused of assaulting woman with bat
PHOENIX -- A Maricopa County Sheriff's Office employee is accused of assaulting a woman with a souvenir baseball bat and pointing a handgun at her in front of her children.
William Glen Edmond was ordered held without bond Monday during an appearance in Maricopa County Superior Court.
The 29-year-old Edmond was arrested last Thursday at his Avondale apartment.
The woman told police Edmond allegedly used a wrestling hold to pin her to a bed on June 30 and used a small wooden bat during the assault.
During an argument later, she says Edmond allegedly pointed a gun at her.
Authorities say Edmond is being held on suspicion of felony sexual assault and felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Court officials say a public defender will be assigned to Edmond.
