PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Providence police are investigating a baseball bat attack against a couple.

Maj. David Lapatin says the assault occurred at about 10 p.m. Wednesday. Police say an unidentified 72-year-old man had run out of gas and his wife, also in her early 70s, arrived in another vehicle to help.

Lapatin says upon her arrival, the couple was assaulted by a man with a metal baseball bat.

Officers found the man too injured to speak and his wife was unconscious. The couple was taken to Rhode Island Hospital.

Lapatin says police have picked up a person of interest who is being held on a warrant from an unrelated case.
