One man sent to hospital after fight on Church Street in Ann Arbor
One man was sent to the hospital after three men punched and kicked him during a fight on Church Street early Sunday, according to police.
Ann Arbor police Lt. Renee Bush said a 21-year-old Southfield man was taken to the University of Michigan Hospital after being assaulted at 2:20 a.m. Sunday in the 600 block of Church Street.
Bush said the man left a bar in the area and witnesses told police he was talking with a woman who he had met inside. A man in an orange polo shirt then approached the 21-year-old and punched him, Bush said.
Witnesses told police that a man in a black tank top also punched the man, causing him to fall to the ground. The man in the black tank top, the man in the orange polo and a third man began kicking the Southfield man when he was on the ground, she said.
Officers who were on foot patrol in the 1100 block of South University Avenue responded to the fight after seeing a man run south on Church Street screaming, “Fight,” according to Bush. A large crowd had gathered in the middle of Church Street and officers observed the man in the orange polo holding his hands up in the air, Bush said.
The crowd scattered and the three men suspected in the assault fled the area, according to Bush. Huron Valley Ambulance responded and transported the Southfield man to the hospital, where he was treated for his injuries, Bush said. Officers had found him unconscious but breathing while he was on the ground on Church Street.
Police are still searching for the three men who are suspected in the assault. Anyone with information on this incident is encouraged to call the Ann Arbor police anonymous tip line at 734-794-6939.
