A Bronx man is facing charges for allegedly hitting his friend in the head with a hammer.

Michael Dilello, 43, is charged with attempted murder, assault and weapons possession.

Police say early Friday morning, he used a hammer to beat a 41-year-old victim, who is still in critical condition.

They say the victim told his wife he was meeting up with Dilello just after midnight.

He returned more than three hours later with numerous cuts, bumps and bruises on his head.

Police say he told his wife "I love you" before slipping into unconsciousness.

It's unclear what led to the attack.
