Two men have been arrested on suspicion of crimes including attempted murder in connection with an early October beating that left a man with a serious head injury.
David Gregory Marquez, 34, and Martin Jay Williams, 28, both of Bakersfield, are alleged to have assaulted a man and woman Oct. 3 at the Blessing Corner Retreat at 906 Union Ave., police said. Both victims were struck in the head with a wooden chair leg at the facility during a disagreement over a debt.
The woman suffered minor to moderate injuries and was treated and released. The man suffered bleeding on the brain and was placed in a medically induced coma.
The man recovered and was released from the hospital Tuesday.
