    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 that Baker's lawyer says his client was trying to defend himself from the alleged victim. Bail was set at $1,000.
