A 20-year-old Lawrence man suffered a head injury in a fight early Tuesday morning in Oread neighborhood.

Sgt. Matt Sarna, a Lawrence police spokesman, said the man was found at South Park about 2 a.m. Tuesday. He said he got into a verbal altercation with another man earlier in the 1300 block of Ohio Street. The victim said that while they were on the ground fighting, he was struck in the back of the head with an unknown object, and the suspect fled. Sarna said the suspect was not identified other than being a white man.

The victim was taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital by ambulance for treatment of a cut to his head. Hospital officials said Tuesday evening that he had been treated and released, but did not give a time.

Anywhere students can drink irresponsibly is a hot spot, they just move around. Winter is coming on and that will slow down some of this outside brawling very soon. It's just college town behavior. Be nice if they would pick up after themselves, but then that would again require personal responsibility. Downtown looks like their trash can after a weekend ball game. Probably that will never change.

"the suspect was not identified other than being a white man."
