A man who was found in his apartment Saturday night with a life-threatening head injury was in stable condition Sunday, Lexington police said.

The man, who was not identified, was taken to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital after a resident in an Elm Tree Lane apartment complex saw blood on the building’s front steps and contacted a maintenance employee, who called police, Lexington police Lt. Eddie Hart said.

He said the man suffered “blunt-force trauma from most likely a rock or hard object,” probably on the porch or just outside on the street, and then went into his apartment on the second floor.

Witnesses told police they heard two men arguing on the porch. Police were called about 8:30 p.m.

“He’s lost a lot more blood because there was a time delay,” Hart said.

Hart said the man, who has a history of aggressive behavior with his neighbors, wouldn’t cooperate with police Sunday. He said anyone with information about the case should contact Lexington police
