A Toledo man remained in critical condition last night at a local hospital after his brother said he was beaten up by suspected drug dealers.
Chad Cole, of 5553 Lewis Ave., Apt. 1 was admitted to St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center after police responded to reports of a large fight in a parking lot at Mr. Cole s home.
Authorities said the crowd had left the scene by the time officers arrived at about 8 p.m. Saturday. Police said they were called back to the scene and found Chad Cole unconscious in his apartment.
Police said Alex Cole, Chad Cole s brother, told them Chad owed money to several drug dealers but was not able to pay. Mr. Cole said he believes they beat up Chad because of it.
The case remained under investigation yesterday, police said.
