The male victim, 40, witnessed the assault and attempted to assist the woman. But, police said Andrade beat with him a metal baseball bat, separating his left shoulder and leaving him with a concussion.

Nassau police declined to disclose the relationship between Andrade and the woman. Police said Andrade did not know the man.

Both victims were taken to Nassau University Medical Center and treated for non life threatening injuries.

Andrade was arraigned on Friday in First District Court in Hempstead.
