A Radcliff man is being held in lieu of a $5,000 cash bond in the Hardin County Detention Center after reportedly striking two family members Wednesday morning with a garden hoe, Radcliff police say.
Matteo Meredith, 20, faces two Class C felony charges of second-degree assault and second-degree assault — domestic violence, each punishable by five to 10 years in prison, if convicted.
One of the reported victims was Meredith’s grandmother, according to an arrest citation.
Police responded to a residence and arrested Meredith a 4:19 a.m. after he struck the woman and another family relative with a “dangerous instrument in the form of a garden hoe,’’ the citation said.
The two people reportedly struck by Meredith received bruising, swelling and a small laceration.
He is scheduled to appear at 9 a.m. May 29 in Hardin District Court.
