While LPD has not officially released the name, the Journal Star has identified the victim as 55-year-old James Baylor. The man accused of assaulting Baylor, 22-year-old Angel Rodriguez Alvis, is currently facing a first-degree assault charge but prosecutors could amend that to a different charge.
Police found the victim with a serious head injury and was taken to the hospital in the early hours of August 27, where he was in critical condition.
