SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO (BCN)

A 20-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assault in South San Francisco last week after he allegedly swung a baseball bat at his father, police said.

At about 5:10 p.m. Friday, officers responded to reports of a fight involving a man and his son at a home in the 500 block of Keoncrest Drive, police said.

During the fight, Austin Jensen allegedly grabbed a metal baseball bat and swung it at his father’s head, narrowly missing, police said.

When his father tried to call police, Jensen allegedly hit the phone with the bat, police said. The father was able to complete the call, and Jensen left before officers arrived.

He was contacted later that day and taken into custody, police said.

Jensen has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon and disabling a phone, San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said.

He posted $25,000 bail and is scheduled to be arraigned on Dec. 31, Wagstaffe said.
