A Grandview man has been charged with assaulting a woman in Lenexa with a baseball bat.

Patrick Rittenhouse, 48, is charged in Johnson County District Court with felony aggravated battery in the Jan. 19 incident.

He is also charged with misdemeanor counts of criminal restraint, theft, intimidation of a witness and criminal damage to property.

Available court records don’t indicate the relationship between Rittenhouse and the alleged victim, but the charges were filed as a domestic violence case.

Lenexa police said the woman was not seriously injured.

Rittenhouse was arrested in Missouri and was booked into the Johnson County jail Wednesday night after waiving his right to fight extradition.
