A 27-year-old Whitmore Lake man accused of attacking an Ann Arbor teenager with a blunt object was arrested Tuesday, police said.
Brae McKee was arrested at South Ashley and West William streets by uniformed officers, Ann Arbor police Lt. Robert Pfannes said.
McKee has been arraigned on one count of assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder and one count of assault with a dangerous weapon, jail records indicate.
He remains at the Washtenaw County Jail on a $25,000 cash bond.
Police said McKee attacked an Ann Arbor teen while he was listening to a band play at Liberty Plaza Sunday night. The 17-year-old was sitting down in the area around 8:25 p.m. when he was struck in the head with a blunt object, witnesses told police. The two had an altercation earlier in the day over money and cigarettes, police said.
The assailant fled and the 17-year-old was taken to University of Michigan Hospital with head injuries. An update on his medical condition was not immediately available.
McKee's booking picture was not available Wednesday because the jail's computer system was down.
