ATCHISON COUNTY —Law enforcement authorities are investigating an assault and have made an arrest.

Just after 1a.m. Monday,  police responded to a parking lot outside an apartment complex in the 300 block Santa Fe in Atchison, according to Police Chief Mike Wilson

A 39-year-old man reported that he had been threatened by a man with a baseball bat as the victim was working on a vehicle in the parking lot.

The suspect later identified as 44-year-old Jason L. Seager then left the scene and was not immediately located.

Just after 4p.m. and following a subsequent investigation, police located and arrested Seager at this residence.

The victim was familiar with the suspect as both lived in the apartment complex but there had not been any previous confrontation prior to this incident, according to Wilson.

There were no injuries reported.  In addition to a requested charge for aggravated assault, Seager is also in custody on two District Court warrants for failure to appear in court.
