He identified the man who struck him; the other man was located and said the other man hit him first. The bleeding man was taken to Blake Medical Center for treatment.

July 6, 2100 block Avenue A, burglary. The complainant said someone took his car, which was later recovered in Holmes Beach with a flat tire.
