A 20-year-old man was attacked by 10 men Tuesday night in an open area of an apartment complex in the 8600 block of W. 13th Street, police said.
The fight happened at 9:15 p.m. The man told police he lost consciousness sometime during the attack. The disturbance happened, the man reported, after his old girlfriend saw him with someone new and rounded up several people to scare him.
“It turned into a confrontation,” police Lt. Doug Nolte said. “It was 10 males against one. Several males left prior to the attack. Some stayed around. The injuries to our victim were pretty significant. He is not sure who attacked him.”
The man was taken to a local hospital suffering from facial bone fractures and head and neck injuries.
Since the fight happened at the apartment complex, Nolte said, there may be people who witnessed the attack. Anyone who has information regarding the attack is encouraged to call 911 or Crime Stoppers at (316) 267-2111.
