Brownsville man jailed for 'baseball bat rampage'

Jesse Sauceda

A Brownsville teen may part of his middle finger after being attacked by a neighbor who went on an alleged baseball bat rampage over the weekend.

It all happened at a trailer park off 365 North Iowa Road around 6:25 p.m. Sunday.

Investigators told Action 4 News that 44-year-old Jesse Sauceda was drunk and using a baseball bat to break windows and attack his neighbors.

A motive is not clear but Sauceda surrendered to officers when they arrived at the scene.

Paramedics rushed a 17-year-old who was bleeding on his hand to the Valley Regional Medical Center.

Investigators said Sauceda hit the teen with a bat and that the 17-year-old may lose the first digit of his right middle finger due to the attack.

The teen, his 19-year-old brother and their 57-year-old father were all attacked.

Sauceda allegedly used the bat to damage the windshield and body of a Ford F-150 truck at the scene.

Officers charged Sauceda with three counts of aggravated assault and one count of criminal mischief.

Sauceda appeared before a Brownsville municipal judge on Monday morning where he was issued $62,000 dollars in bonds.
