Ann Arbor man hospitalized after assault by 5 men outside house party
A 20-year-old Ann Arbor man was hospitalized Monday after being beaten outside of a house party by about five men, according to Ann Arbor police.
Ann Arbor police Lt. Renee Bush said the man went to a party in the 500 block of Walnut Street. He arrived at the party and was immediately told to leave by one of the partygoers.
The man left the house and waited outside for a woman he was planning on meeting, Bush said. Eventually, he started asking where she was at because she wasn’t coming outside.
Another person told him that she had left and he needed to get off the property. The man told police he was then punched in the face and fell to the ground. He stood back up and the men began to punch him in the face and stomach, Bush said.
Passers-by eventually broke up the fight and the man walked back to his house. When he arrived, a roommate called an ambulance at and he was taken to the University of Michigan Hospital. Police responded to the hospital at 3:02 a.m. Monday.
He suffered swelling in his right eye area and soreness in his stomach, Bush said.
There is no further description of the alleged assailants.
