An assault in downtown Sandusky early Saturday morning left one man with severe injuries to his face, witnesses said.
Witnesses at the corner of Jackson and Market streets said a group of people were arguing at about 2 a.m. — the reason, unknown — when some folks started assaulting the man. The victim hopped into a white SUV and fled the scene.
Police scanner traffic indicated an assault victim quickly showed up at the hospital emergency room seeking treatment. Officers could not immediately confirm if the man at the ER was the victim in the downtown assault.
Near a trash can at the corner of Jackson and Market streets, officers recovered a brick that may have been used to bludgeon the man.
