Mace and Baseball Bats

Two men from Great Bend were maced and one was hit with a baseball bat in an attack that happened in the parking lot of the Lonestar Convenience Store at 100N. Broadway.

Police say on Saturday morning around 10:15am, 74-year-old Earl Adams and 60-year-old Louie Philbern were assaulted by a group of people who drove up in two trucks along side their vehicle – jumped out with mace and baseball bats.

Witnesses called police.
