Corsicana — The victim of an assault at a Corsicana bar early Saturday morning was reported to be in intensive care Monday in a Tyler hospital.
Corsicana Police Chief Randy Bratton said the assault was reported at 12:40 a.m. Saturday at The Remington Roadhouse, 122 West Third Avenue.
According to the police report of the incident, the victim was struck in the face by a known suspect. The victim struck his head on the ground after the assault, and was taken to Navarro Regional Hospital by Corsicana Ambulance personnel, and then taken by air ambulance to Trinity Mother Francis Hospital in Tyler.
The alleged assailant fled the bar on foot, the report said.
Bratton said Monday that the victim, a 40-year-old male, remained hospitalized in intensive care at Trinity Mother Francis Hospital. He declined to identify the victim or suspect in the case while detectives were investigating the incident.
The incident is one of five assaults that were reported in downtown Corsicana Friday night.
A female reported she was cut by a knife outside The Remington Ranch shortly before midnight Friday night. The woman reported she was cut after a verbal altercation with an unknown female attacker who then fled the area. The victim was transported to Navarro Regional Hospital by a private car, but then left before being treated.
A man reported he was attacked by two unknown assailants outside The Remington Ranch at about 12:30 a.m. Saturday. The report said the man was knocked down by one person, then kicked by a second attacker. A female employee of The Remington Ranch suffered a wrist injury trying to break up the altercation, Bratton said.
A man was treated and released from Navarro Regional after he was knocked out in an altercation at the Derrick Days Chili Cookoff at Third and Commerce about 11:10 p.m. Friday. The victim told police he was joking with a female friend when a man came up and struck him, knocking him to the ground. He did not want to press charges and would not identify the woman or the attacker, Bratton said.
