A man suspected of “pistol-whipping” another man was arrested Friday night by Garden Grove police.

The incident took place in the area of Beach and Garden Grove boulevards. Patrolling officers were flagged down at 9:27 p.m. by a man bleeding from the head. He told them the person who had assaulted him was hiding in a motel room at the Garden Grove Inn.

The victim was taken to a local hospital where he was listed in stable condition. The suspect has been booked into Orange County Jail in Santa Ana on a variety of charges.
