Injured city man says he was jumped Monday
WARREN — A city man was found badly injured early Monday morning and told police he was jumped.
Officers were called to 263 Third St. SW around 5:40 a.m. and were told by employees of Warren City Sanitation that a man ran out in front of them saying he was jumped.
Police found the victim on the ground, claiming he couldn’t move and that he was beaten with a baseball bat on Fourth Street SW and Valley Avenue SW. He told police he was walking home from a friend’s house when “two or three men wearing all black clothing came up to him and beat him.”
The report also states the victim doesn’t know if anything was taken from him or who the people were. He was having trouble breathing when speaking with officers, making it difficult to understand what was being said.
When paramedics arrived, they cut the victim’s clothing and saw swelling in both of his lower legs, and he couldn’t move his feet. He also complained of leg, back, head and arm pain.
The man was taken to St. Joseph Warren Hospital for treatment.
