Weymouth man undergoes brain surgery after attack
WEYMOUTH, Mass. (WHDH) -- A Weymouth man is recovering from a violent attack.
Doctors performed brain surgery on 19-year-old Joseph Jordan over the weekend.
Officers said another teen used an aluminum bat to hit Jordan in the head.
19-year-old Thomas Curtin-Hiltz is charged with attempted murder and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
Jordan’s father said his son went to the suspect's house to confront a 15-year-old boy who had roughed up his sister and that Curtin-Hiltz was trying to kill his son.
"Joseph went to confront and say stop abusing my sister. And they rushed the car with bats, clubs, tire irons. He said he was going to smash his head like a tomato and it'd be the last daylight he had ever seen,” said Brian Jordan, Joseph Jordan’s father.
The defense said Curtin-Hiltz was just defending his home.
Police also arrested the 15-year-old who had been inside the home.
He is facing similar charges.
