      Two men were arrested after police say they beat two men with a baseball bat and punched them at the Whiting Hotel in Traverse City late last night.

      According to the Traverse City Police Department, the two suspects, a 29-year-old Williamson man and 17-year-old Traverse City man, went to the hotel looking for an acquaintance of theirs that was not there.

      The two victims in the case asked the suspects to leave, which they did.

      A short time later, police say the victims went outside to smoke a cigarette and were jumped by the two suspects. The suspects reportedly beat the suspects with a baseball bat and punched them.

      The glass on the front door of the hotel was also broken.

      The victims received cuts to the head and were treated by personnel on the scene.

      The suspects are currently lodged in the Grand Traverse County jail.
