Man given jail time after assaulting multiple people with baseball bat
A Hastings man was given jail time nearly a year and a half after police say he and another suspect assaulted several people with a baseball bat.
Court records say 22-year-old Dustin Snyder was sentenced to 180 days in jail after taking a plea deal in the case, with credit for 74 days served.
Snyder was convicted of two third-degree assault charges, attempted third-degree assault and D.U.I. He was also ordered to pay a $500 fine and had his license revoked for six months.
He was sentenced to 180 days in jail for each third-degree assault, and was given 90 days for the attempted third-degree assault and 30 days for the D.U.I. Court documents say the sentences will run concurrently, and he is ordered to report to serve his sentence on May 21, 2019.
Police say Snyder and his brother, Anthony Snyder attacked as many as five people back in July 2017 in the 300 block of West E Street in Hastings.
Victims reported injuries to their heads and bodies, and Anthony has still not been arrested in the attack, though an arrest warrant was issued last year.
Witnesses say the whole thing started over stolen marijuana, when the two confronted the assault victims at the front door of a Hastings residence.
