David Frazier, 59, has been charged with one count of malicious wounding, with additional charges pending, according to a report from the Augusta County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies arrived at the scene on McGuslin Lane on Monday at 2:16 p.m. to find a 38-year-old man who had been struck with a baseball bat.
