Frankfort Police received an assault complaint in the Bellpoint area.

The victim, 39-year-old Bryan Cox of Frankfort, told responding officers, that as he was visiting an acquaintance on Wilson Street.

Cox told investigators he was approached by an individual in a white Ford Taurus with tinted windows, and the subject got out of this vehicle and began a verbal confrontation.  Police say this soon escalated into a physical altercation with the suspect initially striking the victim with his fists and then striking him repeatedly in the head and face area with an ax handle.

Cox was treated at the scene by Frankfort Fire and EMS and transported to the Frankfort Regional Medical Center by a private vehicle. Police say Cox was somewhat familiar with the perpetrator, and knew him by name. The Frankfort Police Department is continuing the felony assault investigation.
