BROWARD COUNTY, Fla. -

The man accused of attacking his ex-girlfriend and her 9-year-old son with a bat, sending them both to the hospital with serious injuries, has been arrested, according to Brevard County Sheriff's Office.

Kevin Fitser, 37, was arrested late Wednesday night in Broward County by deputies.

Deputies said the attack happened about 3 a.m. Sunday in the Aurora Pines mobile home park off Aurora Road in Melbourne. Fitser came to the house and confronted his ex-girlfriend with a bat, neighbors said.

When they got to the home, deputies said they found the woman and her son with severe injuries from strikes with the bat. Both were rushed to Holmes Regional Medical Center.

Fister used to live in Broward County and court records show he's been charged with several felonies, including grand theft auto, possession of cocaine and arson.  In Brevard County, records show he's only faced minor charges, such as traffic violations and criminal mischief.
