July 26, 1996

A stick-wielding man who struck a motorist as he got out of his car Tuesday got more than he bargained for when the victim punched him in the face, county police said.

Jim A. Morgan, 42, of the 300 block of Grove Park Road in Baltimore told police he drove to the High's convenience store in the 700 block of Church St. near the Baltimore County line about 9: 30 p.m. As he got out of his car, someone hit him in the head with a wooden stick.

Morgan turned around and punched his assailant in the face, and the man and his companion fled, police said.
