A man believed to be about 25 to 30 years old was found beaten and lying in a street on Detroit’s east side early Thursday morning, police said.

The man was found by someone in the area at about 4:25 a.m. on the 14600 block of Frankfort, which is north of East Warren and west of Alter Road. Medics responded to a 911 call about the man and transported him to an area hospital.

Police have not yet identified the man, said Officer Jennifer Moreno, a Detroit Police Department spokeswoman. At this point the circumstances behind the man’s beating are unknown, other than that he suffered “blunt force trauma to the body and head,” and that some sort of “broken object,” was found near his body. Further details were not immediately available.

The victim was in critical condition at last report.
