On Wednesday night Spokane police responded to the 3800 block of N Division for reports of an assault. 

Police were told a man, later identified as 41-year-old Jeremy Lindholm, was beating a woman with a baseball bat. 

When police arrived to the unnamed business, they saw Lindholm trying to flee out the back of the business, he was still holding the baseball bat. When police confronted him in the alleyway, he quickly gave up and was arrested. 

Police said they spoke with the victim and witnesses and learned this was domestic violence related. Police also watch surveillance video back which showed an extremely violent attack. 

Officers said they believe the victim's life was in danger and there was information to suggest Lindholm intended to kill the victim. 

Lindholm was booked into Spokane County Jail for Attempted Murder 2nd degree, 2nd degree assault and several other charges, including assaulting the victim’s friend.

The victim was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. 

If you or someone you know is a victim of domestic violence, Spokane police ask you contact them. They can both investigate the criminal acts, as well as put victims in touch with services.
