Lexington Police are investigating an assault that happened outside some apartments Saturday night.

Officers said they were called to the Elm Tree Lane Apartments around 8:30 p.m.

According to police, neighbors found a man lying on the steps leading up to his second floor apartment with a head injury.

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 took him to UK Hospital for x-rays.

Witnesses told police that they heard him arguing with someone before they found him on the steps with the injury.

Officers said they don’t have a description or name for the person the victim was possibly arguing with before the assault.
