— Paramedics transported a 27-year-old man to Wesley Medical Center early Friday morning after someone punched him repeatedly in a parking lot in the 200 block of North Washington.

The victim told police he was in his vehicle when a man he did not know approached him about 2:10 a.m. Friday, reached into his vehicle’s open window and punched him at least 15 times. The victim suffered a facial fracture, broken teeth and a perforated eardrum, Wichita Police Lt. Doug Nolte said.

Police ask anyone who may have seen the incident to call 911.
