Toledo police were at a loss about what happened to a Toledo man who was found unresponsive on a central city street early yesterday with a fractured skull.
Anthony Dunn, 21, of Berdan Avenue, was taken in "very critical" condition to Mercy St. Vincent Center, Toledo police said. He was unconscious when found at 12:10 a.m. in the roadway at Sherman Street and Mayville Place, a block south of the hospital, police said.
Seeking help in identifying the victim, investigators released a picture of the man's left forearm, which has a tattoo that spells "Anthony." Police identified the victim yesterday afternoon after the victim's father called police, Sgt. Phil Toney said.
Capt. Ray Carroll said police had no witnesses and no suspects and that it was unclear whether the victim was assaulted where he was found or whether he was driven or dragged there.
"His head injuries were too severe for him to have walked there," Captain Carroll said. "He also had facial abrasions, so maybe he was dragged there. But so far these are all theories."
Susan Lee, 23, said she was picking up her year-old son at her mother's place in the 2200 block of Mayville about midnight when she saw police lifting a man a short way down the street.
Ms. Lee said that her mother, who works at the hospital and baby-sits her son regularly, has never complained about safety problems in the neighborhood.
