HOLLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) – Two suspects accused of attacking a 21-year-old Holland Township man with a pickaxe and baseball bat have been arrested.

Codi James Antoniello, 19, and a 16-year-old male were arrested Thursday at an apartment complex in Holland Township.

Antoniello, who authorities say was trying to shave his head in order to alter his appearance when he was arrested, was arraigned Friday on charges of felonious assault and first-degree home invasion.

The 16-year-old suspect will be charged as an adult in the case, according to the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office. He is currently being held in juvenile detention.

Investigators say the suspects went into the victim’s home, which is in the 400 block of Howard Avenue of Holland Township, around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday and began to attack him.

The fight started after one of the suspects, who is dating the victim’s ex-girlfriend, and the victim were communicating on Facebook, authorities said.

The victim was taken to the hospital and treated for injuries to his face and head. He was said to be in good condition.
