Police responded around noon May 6 to the 2200 block of East Fifth Street. A man who called 911 told police that he was hit with a hammer around his head and body. The suspect, identified as Green, fled in a green Cadillac and the victim was treated at Miami Valley Hospital, according to an affidavit filed in Dayton Municipal Court.

A detective found the suspect’s car near McLain and Jude streets, and police found Green at a house in the 1600 block of McLain Street. During an interview with a detective, Green “acknowledged chasing [the man] with a hammer due to a dispute over bicycles,” court documents read. “George Edward Green said he ‘blacked out’ during the assault and did not remember what happened.”
