ST. CLOUD (KNSI) - A hammer attack ended with two men injuried - and possibly two sets of criminal charges.

St. Cloud Police Sergeant Jason Burke says officers were called to the 10 block of 4th Avenue North on Wednesday just before 11:30 p.m.

53 year-old Michael Boyland of St. Cloud was arrested for allegedly hitting a 24 year-old St. Cloud man in the head several times with a hammer.

The victim was treated for lacerations at St. Cloud Hospital. Boyland was also treated for injuries before being taken to the Stearns County Jail.

Boyland faces possible 2nd degree assault charges. The victim could also see 5th degree assault charges following a review by the attorney's office.
