TOLEDO (WTOL) - Toledo Police have arrested a suspect in the baseball-bat beating of a teenage boy who remains hospitalized with life-threatening injuries.
According to Toledo Municipal Court records, Terry Pearson, 18, of the 500 block of Mulberry Street, was arrested Thursday and charged with felonious assault.
Anonymous tips led to the defendant as being the suspect as well as the identities of three other suspects that were with him, court records show.
On Dec. 15, 16-year-old Marcus Bailey Jr. was attacked with a baseball bat by three men in east Toledo, Toledo Police said.
Crews responded to the 700 block of Main Street for an assault with injuries just before 8 p.m.
When police arrived on scene, the teen was on the ground and unresponsive.
Marcus remains hospitalized with life-threatening injuries, police said.
According to court documents, one of the other suspects, Demonte Smith, admitted to being there and stated that Pearson grabbed a bat from Marcus and hit him in the back of the head.
Pearson puts himself as driving the suspect vehicle and stated he got out of his vehicle along with two others to confront the victim, court records state.

"When my son started to run they grabbed the baseball bat out of his hand and they smacked him in the back of his head with a metal baseball bat so hard that he fell on his face," said his mother.
"He had severe bleeding and swelling to the brain. They had to remove part of his skull. Without surgery he would have died," said Bailey.
Doctors tell his mother the prognosis isn't good. He will be in the hospital for weeks, likely go to rehab after that, and the extent of the damage done to his brain could take a long time to find out.

Pearson's family said they were shocked by the arrest.
"It's a bad situation for both families, and prayers for the young man and Terry, but at the end of the day it's just a shock, it's very heartbreaking," said Terry Pearson's cousin, who did not want to be identified.
Court documents show Pearson has a criminal history, with prior charges including theft, stealing drugs and breaking and entering.
