Victim, 73, Treated For Facial Injuries

ALLEGHANY COUNTY, N.C. -- A 73-year-old farmer in Alleghany County was beaten by a man who was hunting illegally on his property in the Twin Oaks community, Alleghany County Sheriff David Edwards said.

Edwards said the victim, Edward Crouse, saw the suspect, 45-year-old Stevie Daniels, trespassing on the property and confronted him about 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Daniels attacked Crouse, beating him in the face, Edwards said. Crouse was taken to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center to be treated for his injuries.
He was listed in good condition Thursday afternoon.

Daniels was arrested at an in-law's house and charged with assault inflicting serious injury.

Edwards said Daniels claimed he knew the victim, but Crouse told deputies he didn't know Daniels.
