A Natrona County man is accused of trying to enter a house and hitting a woman in the head with an aluminum baseball bat.

Brian Jensen has pleaded not guilty to one charge of aggravated assault and battery with a deadly weapon.

Investigators with the Evansville Police Department say in middle July, Jensen tried to enter a house on the 400 block of Evans Street.

The female victim said he was there to collect some money from her boyfriend, and she attempted to reason with him at the front door.

Witnesses told police that as soon as the door was opened, Jensen hit the victim at least twice in the head with a bat and then left the area a short time later.

He is being held on $20,000 bond awaiting trial, and could face up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
