A 22-year-old man was transported to Lexington Regional Health Center Thursday evening following an alleged assault in Plum Creek Park in Lexington. At 7:11pm, the Lexington Volunteer Fire Department was dispatched to Cottonwood Apartments where the man fled to after the assault. Police Chief Tracy Wolf says it was initially thought the man had been stabbed but, after treatment it was determined he had actually suffered a defensive knife wound to the hand and a head injury where he had apparently been struck with a brick.

He was taken to the Police Department and then booked into the Dawson County Jail after being medically cleared at LRHC.
