ST. LOUIS (AP) – Authorities in St. Louis are blaming a knockout assault for an attack that left a homeless man with a head injury.

The man was assaulted Monday night near the St. Louis Post-Dispatch building at Cole and Tucker. The victim’s name has not been released. He remains hospitalized with what is called a serious head injury.

The Post-Dispatch reports that two men crossed the street and began attacking the victim for no apparent reason. Police say the men punched the victim in the face without provocation, then ran away.

No arrests have been made.
