SHERMAN, Tex. -- What began as a confrontation on Monday night turned into an assault and car theft. Now, Sherman Police are investigating who committed the crime and why.

Police say the victim's story has a lot of holes in it.

We're told the two victims showed up at this parking lot to meet up with a group of people whom they knew.

That's when police say the group came after the victims with a baseball bat.

The alleged incident took place around eight o’clock Monday night when a man got a call to meet up with some people he knew. Police say he drove himself and his friend in his girlfriend's car to the Jamestown Plaza parking lot at Grand Avenue & Texoma Parkway.

Upon arrival, they saw the other group of men with bats, so they abandoned the car and took off running. One of the victims was hit in the back of the head with a bat, but officials say he will be okay.

At that point, they heard screeching tires and say they looked back to see their car was stolen. The victims then called the police.

Meanwhile, a passerby called authorities to report seeing the stolen car.

The abandoned car was found vandalized just a few blocks away under the Grand Street overpass.

Police say they are still trying to figure out why these two groups decided to meet in the first place and also what charges to file.

No arrests have been made but police say they are following leads.

    This stuff happens all the time in Grayson County..especially Sherman/Denison. Most of the time it is the same group of hood rats! Wish they would all get jobs and do something productive for once in their lives. Parents???

    Yeah, there's more to this story. Innocent people don't meet up with people who want to assault them for no reason...

    Let's see; I'm in a car and I see a group of people with bats who appear to want to hurt me. So I abandon the much faster car and decide to run away on foot. Yeah I'd say there are holes in this story. Not to mention the missing "H" I will leave for the editors to find.
