PINECREST (CBSMiami) – A fender bender led to a brutal attack with a baseball bat in Pinecrest Thursday morning.
It happened just after 5 a.m. at the intersection of South Dixie Highway and Southwest 112th Street.
Investigators said a sedan slammed into a grey pick-up truck driven by 55-year-old Roger Flores.
Following the crash, Flores told investigators two men exited the sedan and one of them told him to drive away.
When he wouldn’t, he said the man smashed out his rear window and started choking him and punching him.
Florida said the other man used a wooden baseball bat to bash his truck and then pound Flores in the chest and belly.
Police arrested 19-year-old Brian Boyd and 20-year-old Rovantai Payne on scene.
Payne is looking at charges of burglary to a vehicle with aggravated battery, criminal mischief and resisting arrest without violence.
Boyd faces charges of burglary to a vehicle with battery, criminal mischief, marijuana possession, threatening a public servant and battery on a law enforcement officer.
According the arrest report, Boyd kicked out the rear window of the patrol car causing more than a thousand dollars in damage.
Police also said Boyd became irate during questioning, flipping a table and throwing chairs into the wall.
Both suspects were being held without bond at the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center.
Flores was treated and released from Baptist Hospital, but a woman at his home in Hialeah said he returned to the hospital late Thursday for a CT scan and X-rays because he was still in a lot of pain.
