Atlanta man charged in Norcross baseball bat attack

NORCROSS -- An Atlanta man has been charged in a weekend tirade with a baseball bat that left his ex-girlfriend's new beau with a broken arm and several windows smashed, police said Monday.

Dujuan Gibson is charged with felony aggravated assault, aggravated battery and criminal damage to property second-degree in the Saturday incident.

Gibson is accused of striking the victim with the bat at his ex-girlfriend's residence in the 2100 block of Newbury Road. He also used the baseball bat to smash windows at the residence and to bust four windows in the other man's car, said Norcross police spokesman Capt. Brian Harr.

Gibson fled the scene, and Norcross police issued a BOLO alert for his vehicle.

A Duluth police officer conducting an area check at Rogers Mill subdivision spotted a red Chevy Trail Blazer that appeared to match Gibson's about 1 a.m. The passenger looked like Gibson, so the officer approached and asked for his ID, which matched the name on the alert, according to a Duluth police report.

When Gibson exited the vehicle, he "took an aggressive boxing stance and punched the drivers side rear window with his right hand," the arresting officer wrote.

Gibson was arrested without further incident. He remains at the Gwinnett County Jail without bond.
