Lexington Herald-Leader

A man was taken to a hospital Monday after what he told police was an attack by a group of people on Georgetown Road near Lima Drive.

The man, who is in his mid-50s, said he was walking down Georgetown Road when a vehicle pulled up and several people got out and attacked him, Lexington police Sgt. Ann Welch said.

He said he fell to the ground and felt a pain in his chest, Lt. Kevin Metcalf said. He then got up and ran to his home on Erie Drive, where he called police.

He was taken to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital with a minor head injury and a chest cut, Welch said. His injuries were not thought to be life-threatening.

It wasn't clear how many suspects were involved or what kind of vehicle they drove, Metcalf said.
