A Jersey City man's ear was partially cut off when he was slugged in the head with an aluminum baseball batafter an argument over $20 on a Marion section street last night, officials said.

When police arrived at the 45-year-old victim's Nunda Avenue home around 9 p.m. they found him being treated by New Jersey emergency medical technicians for injuries to his left ear, reports said.

He said he'd been arguing with a man over money on Dales Avenue and when he began walking away, the man hit him on the side of the head with the bat, reports said.

He told the officers he was knocked to the ground by the blow and from there he saw the man walking away holding the bat, reports said. The victim was taken to the Jersey City Medical Center for treatment of the non-life-threatening injury and he was listed in stable condition
