2 arrested in Roseville bowling ball attack
Two people have been arrested in connection with an incident in which a bowling alley employee was struck on the head with a bowling ball, Roseville police said Monday.
Branden Moore, 31, of Clinton Township was arraigned in 39th District Court on single counts of assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder and interfering with a crime report — committing a crime/threatening to kill or injure, both 10-year felonies.
A second person also is in custody and awaiting arraignment, police said.
According to police, a group of people at Apollo Lanes, 29410 Gratiot, became unruly and created a disturbance Wednesday, police said. One of the bowling alley's employees, a 28-year-old Roseville man, asked the group to leave, they said.
Several members of the group surrounded the counter where the employee was standing, police said.
One of the men in the group reached over the counter and punched the employee in the face, officials said. Another man in the group stepped behind the counter and punched and kicked the worker in the face and on his body, they said.
The first assailant walked behind the counter and struck the worker with a bar stool on the head, according to authorities. He then picked up a bowling ball and struck the worker on the back of the head, police said.
