A man is in jail recovering after being struck in the head with a sledge hammer.

37-Year-old Willie Bailey tried to force his way into a home in the 6500 block of Garland Street around 2 p.m. Monday afternoon.

A 28-year-old man and his wife were at home when Bailey tried to enter. Bailey did know the people inside the home.

The man used a sledgehammer to keep Bailey from entering the home. 

He was transported to the hospital where he was medically cleared and then taken to jail.

Bailey is charged with vandalism and disturbing the peace.
