An eastern Missouri man is facing charges for allegedly attacking his cousin with a jack handle.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 22-year-old Sean Creamer of Moscow Mills is charged with first-degree assault. He is jailed on $100,000 cash-only bond.

Police say Creamer told authorities he was mad because his cousin slammed a door and woke up his family.

Creamer allegedly drove to the cousin's home, grabbed a jack handle, and struck him twice in the head, then chased him with the jack handle. Creamer told police the victim tried to assault him first.

The victim was hospitalized, but details about his injuries were not released.
