JENISON, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Deputies say they've arrested a man who tried to beat his own dad to death in his sleep.

Ottawa County deputies say a 34-year-old man broke into his 70-year-old dad's home on Thornwood Avenue, off Bauer Road, in Jenison Monday morning.

Bret Bardwell is accused of breaking his dad's arm and wrist, and fractured his head and face.

Deputies say Bardwell's dad was able to make it to a neighbor's home for help.

Bardwell was arrested at his home in Wyoming later that day.

He's now charged with home invasion and attempted murder.
