Updated Information:
On 09-16-2012 at about 10:00 PM a 34 year old male walked into the Mercy Regional Health Center with a significant cut to his mouth. Follow up investigation revealed that the male had been involved in at least one physical altercation at Bobby T’s, 3240 Kimball Ave, MHK on 09-16-2012 at 0210 hours. The male later awoke in a pool of blood in the laundry room of 3120 Heritage Lane and walked home.
 
The precise cause of the man’s injury is still being determined and the altercation is being investigated. It has not been conclusively determined that all of the man’s injuries occurred during the altercation, or if he later fell, etc. Intoxication is believed to be a factor in the incident. The man is being listed as the suspect on a battery report, so his name cannot be released.The RCPD is confident that it has found the source of the blood and considers this portion of the matter closed.
