The Marin County Sheriff's Office is investigating a baseball bat assault in Inverness Park where 700 marijuana plants were growing in two buildings on the property, a sheriff's lieutenant said.

Deputies responded around 7:30 a.m. to what was reported as an attempted murder at 11 Redwood Ave., Lt. Doug Pittman said. A 26-year-old woman, one of three roommates living on the property, assaulted another roommate in the head with the bat while he was sleeping, Pittman said. The wounded man sought help from his other roommate who drove him to a hospital, Pittman said. On the way to the hospital, the suspect chased the victim and other roommate in her orange-colored van on Sir Francis Drake Boulevard through Inverness Park, ramming her van twice into the victim's car before fleeing, Pittman said. The two roommates arrived at the hospital where the victim was treated for his injuries, Pittman said. Sheriff's deputies found approximately 700 marijuana plants inside two buildings on the property, and an investigation is under way to determine a cause for the attack, Pittman said.
