The (Late) Morning Blotter: Man Suffers Brutal Beating In University District

A man sustained several broken bones in his face after he was jumped in the University District earlier this week, according to a police report.

The man told police he was walking along 47th and University around 1:00, when he turned to walk up towards 15th Ave NE.

Four men jumped the man from behind, punching him in the head, and knocking him to the ground.

While the victim was on the ground, the suspects hit him in the face “numerous times,” knocking him unconscious.

The man later went to the hospital where doctors found that his right eye socket had been fractured, and his nose had been broken. The man also sustained cuts to his face.

The victim wasn’t able to provide police with much of a description of the suspects. The report says the four suspects were tall males in their 20s.

The man told officers he didn’t recall having any altercations earlier in the evening.
