A 20-year-old Lincoln man is accused of coming after an 18-year-old with an electric drill in a fight just before 6 p.m. Monday in the 2900 block of E Street.
Elijiah Phillips was taken to jail on suspicion of second-degree assault and use of a deadly weapon.
Lincoln Police Officer Erin Spilker said police found an 18-year-old bleeding from his face who said he'd been assaulted by Phillips, who was still inside.
Based on statements, police think it all started with an argument that turned physical between the 18-year-old man and a 14-year-old boy, who charged at him. Spilker said they believe that's when Phillips jumped in with the drill, hitting the 18-year-old several times in the face and head with it.
The victim went outside and started hitting Phillips' Honda Pilot with a shovel, causing minor damage.
Spilker said the victim went to the hospital for his injuries and was ticketed for vandalism, and they referred the 14-year-old to juvenile court for third-degree assault.
Police arrested Phillips.
