CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) - An Oregon man accused of attacking two people with a baseball bat has been found unfit for trial.

The Gazette-Times reports (https://is.gd/Uew4jj ) a Benton County judge made the decision about Bradley Gentle this week after reading a psychologist’s report.

The 33-year-old man was charged with assault and unlawful use of a weapon after police say he struck a man and a woman at the Corvallis-Benton County Public Library.

Police said the Jan. 7 attacks happened without warning. The man suffered a deep laceration on his forehead and a woman was struck in the hand.

Officers arrested Gentle after he was found near the scene holding a baseball bat.

He’s scheduled to be evaluated within 60 days of his arrival at the Oregon State Hospital, to determine whether he will have the capacity to stand trial.
