Lexington Police said the man assaulted Saturday night at Elm Tree Lane Apartments is in stable condition and should recover.
Officers added that he was not being very cooperative with them as they tried to learn more about his attacker.
According to police, neighbors found a man lying on the steps leading up to his second floor apartment with a head injury around 8:30 p.m.
They said by the time they arrived, he had already lost a lot of blood.
Police believe the man was hit on the head, possibly with a rock.
They said he was trying to speak, but it was hard to understand him. Crews then took him to UK Hospital for x-rays.
Witnesses told police that they heard him arguing with someone earlier in the night.
They still do not have any suspects.
