Lakewood bar fight leaves man with life-threatening injuries

A 47-year-old man suffered life-threatening injuries in a fight during a pool game at a Lakewood bar Wednesday night, according to police.

The man, whom authorities are not identifying, apparently was playing pool in the “Last Call” bar at about 11:30 p.m. when he bumped into another man playing pool nearby, Lakewood police spokesman Chris Lawler wrote in a news release. Then the other player allegedly punched the victim, who fell and struck his head on the floor.

The victim immediately lost consciousness, Lawler wrote. Police are looking for the man who punched him. He apparently fled the scene, the release says.

They are looking at surveillance video but are also asking citizens for help locating the man, described as a Native American in his 30s, roughly 5-foot-10 and 220 pounds with long black hair worn in two braids.

He was wearing a long sleeved white T-shirt and khaki pants at the time of the assault, police said.
