Police: Man says a woman named Ashley hit him with a stick

A man showed up at his girlfriend’s apartment Tuesday night with a gash on his head that he said was caused by another woman hitting him with a stick, Wichita police said Wednesday.

The 22-year-old man arrived at about 11:30 p.m. at the apartment in the 900 block of North Market with a “pretty good-size gash on top of his head,” Lt. Doug Nolte said. He was later treated at Via Christi Hospital St. Francis, he added.

The man could only tell police that a woman named Ashley hit him over the head with a stick near 11th Street and Madison, just west of Grove, Nolte said.

“Officers couldn’t find the scene or Ashley,” he said. “The victim couldn’t give us a good accounting of what transpired before the attack. I don’t know if he got hit in the head and couldn’t remember or what.”
