Two men were charged in a weekend beating that left a Toledo man in critical condition in St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center.
Lagarious Gardner, 27, of 5553 Lewis Ave., Apt. 42, was arraigned yesterday in Toledo Municipal Court on a felonious assault charge for the beating of Chad Cole. Mr. Gardner was being held in the Lucas County jail in lieu of a $100,000 bond.
Andre Harris, 25, of the Lewis address, Apt. 103, was charged with felonious assault in an arrest warrant filed in municipal court. He was not in custody last night.
Police were also looking for a third suspect, who has not been charged.
Mr. Cole was assaulted on Saturday at the apartment complex where he and the suspects live, over money owed to suspected drug dealers, authorities said.
