HOLLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — One of the people accused of attacking a man he met on Craigslist for a drug deal has been arrested.
Valdemar Beltran, 17, was arrested Thursday, according to the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office, and has been charged with assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder.
Information from Craigslist helped identify the suspect, the sheriff’s office said, and Beltran was found at his girlfriend’s house in the 3000 block of Clearview Drive in Holland Township.
The assault happened last week at the victim’s Holland Township home. He told authorities that he got into an argument with two people he met on Craigslist and with whom he had discussed a drug deal. The two assaulted the victim with baseball bats. He sustained non-life-threatening wounds to his head and hands.
Beltran’s bond was set at $100,000. Authorities say he is cooperating with them.
A second suspect has not yet been arrested.
