A Half Moon Bay man was arrested Tuesday afternoon after hitting another man in the head with a skateboard while on a walking trail near Friendly Acres ranch in Half Moon Bay, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.

At about 1:55 p.m. Nov. 19, deputies responded to the area on the report of an assault that just took place. Deputies found the man with major trauma to his head and he identified Derek Thomas Bullene as the man who assaulted him after the two had an argument, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
