November 24, 2020 Digital Media Exclusive

Butler Township police are investigating a suspected assault Monday night in the parking lot of a bar that left a 28-year-old man in need of treatment at a Pittsburgh hospital.

The victim suffered injuries that included a black eye, a cut to the back of the head and a small puncture wound in his back that may have been inflicted by an object other than a knife, police Lt. Matthew Pearson said Tuesday.

The man was flown by medical helicopter to UPMC Presbyterian hospital, where he was treated and released only a few hours after the assault outside Rock Ann Haven on Greenwood Drive.

Police did not release the victim's name. Pearson said they have no suspects and the investigation is ongoing.
