Police: man struck in head airlifted, had threatened a man with knife

A man was airlifted to a Lexington hospital after he was reportedly struck in the head with a piece of wood after he threatened another man with a butcher knife, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

The fight happened before 4 p.m. Friday at a home along Old State Road, located six miles south of London.

Senior Sgt. Greg Poynter, Deputy Robbie Grimes and Constable Tim May responded to a 911 call about a man who had been assaulted and was laying near the road unresponsive. When deputies and the constable arrived they were told the man had come to the home and appeared to be intoxicated. The man carried a butcher knife and reportedly kicked open the door and threatened another man, who chased him from the home. During the chase, the intoxicated man reportedly swung the knife at the other man, who struck him with the piece of wood.

The intoxicated man was treated by ambulance Inc of Laurel County before being airlifted to University of Kentucky Medical Clinic in Lexington for treatment.

Detective Charlie Loomis assisted with the investigation, which continues.
