BROCKTON, Mass. (AP) -- A Massachusetts man has pleaded not guilty to attacking a bicyclist with sausage links and a wrench before making off with jewelry and the bike.

Michael Baker, of Holbrook, was arraigned Monday on charges including assault and battery with a dangerous weapon in connection with the Sunday morning attack. The Enterprise of Brockton reports (http://bit.ly/KYmjvr) that Baker's lawyer says his client was trying to defend himself from the alleged victim. Bail was set at $1,000.

The bicyclist tells police the assailant swung the string of sausage links at him before hitting him with the wrench.

Police say Baker was caught a short time later with the bike and a wrench. Police later found that sausages and other food had been stolen from a food stand at the Brockton Fairgrounds.
