A 64-year-old man is in critical but stable condition after he was beaten by another man wielding a baseball bat in a seemingly random attack, police in Delaware said.

Witnesses said the suspect beat the victim with a baseball bat before running away. Police found the alleged attacker, identified as 29-year-old Rafael Murillo, nearby and arrested him. Officers also found the baseball bat. Paramedics took the victim to the hospital.

Murillo is facing charges of attempted murder and possession of a deadly weapon. He’s at the Howard R. Young Correctional Institution on $90,000 cash bail.
