Springfield police are investigating an assault where a man was beaten and blood was found on a metal folding chair.
Police arrived at a residence on the 200 block of Yellow Springs Street at about 4 p.m. Sunday where they found the victim on the floor, according to a police report.
“(The victim) had multiple facial injuries that appeared to be significant,” the reports says. “(The victim) was bleeding from his nose and mouth, as well as several other areas of his face and head. (The victim) was conscious but not very coherent.”
