Baseball bats used in two separate Albany attacks

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -   Albany police are investigating two assaults with baseball bats.
About 3:30 Monday morning, someone tried to hit an 80-year old South Albany man with a metal bat.

 William Coley was asleep in his home in the 500 block of South Davis Street when he heard someone come in his front door.

 He confronted the burglar, who swung the baseball bat at him, but missed. 

 Coley ran next door where neighbors called police.  

 The neighbors say the home invader stole about  $100 dollars from Coley's home and ran. 

About 7:30 Sunday morning, 24-year old Homer Holiday and 32-year old Tonisha Johnson got into a fight with a man at this duplex in the 700 block of Burke Avenue. 

Police say that man hit Holiday in the neck with a bat and pushed Johnson to the ground, injuring her elbow. 

Both were taken by ambulance to the hospital for treatment.  

Police have not found either attacker.
