Hospital releases victim of assault

April 10, 2008

A Lawrence man who was beaten early Tuesday morning in downtown has been released from the hospital.

The 25-year-old suffered facial injuries and a small brain hemorrhage, friends said. After the apparent beating, the man - who works at nearby Replay Lounge, 946 Mass. - was found lying in the street about 4:30 a.m. near the northeast corner of 10th and Massachusetts streets.

According to the police report, the man told police a vehicle full of five men approached him. One of the five asked for directions. Then, one of the occupants hit him.

The victim refused an ambulance, but friends later took him to the Lawrence Memorial Hospital emergency room, and he was transferred to KU Hospital, where he was treated before he was discharged Wednesday.

Police continue to investigate the incident.

Haiku, unfortunately, this happened at 4:30 in the morning. He had just finished helping with clean-up at the Replay, so there weren't that many people around. I don't know if there is an official description being released, or even if there were any witnesses who were able to give a description.

Can anyone post a description of the perps or the kind of car they were driving? With 40,000 people in the area that night, it may ring a bell with someone and generate useful tips.

Unfortunately, it's been my direct observation of several occurrences where the violence has been directed at the homeless and locals, and the perpetrators were frat boys leaving the Brothers bar or driving around. One such observance was the beating of Jeffrey, another happened to a musician friend of mine right in front of us on 10th st.

Well, I don't know too many of the homeless who have vehicles. Maybe they sleep in them, but I'm guessing this was done by some drunks, maybe the ones he prevented from climbing into the Replay. Just some good ole boys who thought they would beat up some freaky Lawrence guys. Of course, they only pick on someone alone. Real cowards.

Expect more of this in Lawrence. EAst of Kasold, in the next decade, you will see more slums , apartment complexes full of riff raff and East Lawrence, and Brook Creek area will be bottomed out. Why? The city is intent on moving the Drop In Shelter east because "services" are there. Why in the crap doesn';t this city commisson get some balls and stop this nonsense. Move these "services" west of town and lets see how many services are needed. We have riff raff for commissoners and Lawrence will decline like never imagineed. KU basketball won't help/Leadership will . Get with the letters Dolph and flush out the secret to success or maybe Dolph, doesn't really care either. after all he is and old man waiting to die. Gage and Simons could really do something with the JW.

Typical scenario where boys from the hood pick out an isolated guy on the street late at night and surround and beat the hell out of him and kick him in the head to earn their gang colors, etc.This is just another example of how the LJW will never ever on its own initiative come out and say that a member of a "minority" has been eyewitness identified as the perpetrator of a crime!

great point Crossfire. Im glad Seth is on the mend and my thoughts, prayers and now my money are with him. He did not deserve this but I am glad he got the help that he needed in time and that he still has a bright future.

cross, he just wanted to avoid paying for an ambulance. His friends took him right away. But I get your point.

Just lucky that he did not refuse the help in Topeka.There he would have been cuffed and tazzed and left for dead. (for his own good)

I'm glad to hear that he's on the road to recovery. I hope they catch the cowards that ambushed him.

Seth was leaving work. He is the kind of guy who goes to get his car, to drive others to their cars so they don't have to walk in the downpour that was happening at the time. (Note, he had been having to keep people from climbing over the wall to get into the Replay from behind during the festivities..related?)While he went to get the car, he was jumped around 4:30.

Punks run in packs! Cuz this kind of person feels insecure and has to have the love of his/her fellow insecure lowlifes! So to make themselves feel superior they gang up on a situation they feel is a easy mark! 2 bad it wasnt steven segal or bill "superfoot" wallace..even though they are old i bet the punks would have recieved the beatin they need to wake theyre punk@ssup! Even if they dont find these loser punks...Kharma has a funny way of balancing the universe! "Your time is gonna come"!

I misread. They are saying 10th and Mass now. apologies. The first article was erroneous.

I am still having a hard time figuring out how 10th and Missouri is "nearby" the Replay lounge. And since it is not, how is his employment relevant to anything. Is the LJW trying to insinuate something here?
