Man found with life-threatening injuries in vacant Lexington house

A man was found suffering from life-threatening injuries in a vacant house on Georgetown Street Monday afternoon, Lexington police said.

The man, who was not identified, appeared to be the victim of an assault, said Lt. David Biroschik. He was taken to the University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital. Further information about his condition was not available.

Biroschik said police were called out to assist the fire department on the case at 5:07 p.m.

The residence where the man was found seems to be "a flop house where people come and go," on the 400 block of Georgetown Street, he said.
