A Hopkinsville man was beaten unconscious last night and was taken to a Nashville Hospital for his injuries, while police look for three suspects accused in the assault.
The report from Hopkinsville Police says the incident happened around 8:45 at 1021 North Main St, where 18-year old Brandon Gard of Hopkinsville showed up after a friend invited him.
Once there, Gard was attacked by three men who gave him a concussion, a swollen and black eye and a fractured skull. The victim was first taken to Jennie Stuart Medical Center, but was later transferred to Vanderbilt University Medical Center to treat his bleeding fractured skull.
Police believe Gard was attacked because he had taken some items the suspects had stolen back to the Kangaroo Mart on North Main. It was unknown if the suspects used any type of weapon in the attack.
