Dothan police said a man approached a stranger’s home, accused the victim of stealing his property, and then beat him with a wooden rake.
Reginald Randal Glanton, 43, of Dothan, was charged with second-degree assault and third-degree theft of property for crimes that occurred on March 26.
Dothan Police Lt. Scott Owens said Glanton went to a residence in the 500 block of N. Lena Street.
“Glanton walked up to the victim, accused him of taking his property, and struck the victim five to six times in the head with a wooden rake,” Owens said. “As some point, the victim dropped his phone and Glanton picked it up and took it.”
Owens said it appears that Glanton did not know the victim.
Glanton was arrested on warrants on Sunday with bonds totaling $25,000.
