Shortly before 10 p.m. this last Tuesday, officers responded to a report of a disturbance at 223 SE Lawrence.
When officers arrived, they located a man who was severely beaten. The victim, Emmanuel J. Johnson, 40, of Topeka was transported to a local hospital with life threatening injuries.
It appears at this time that the injuries were sustained as a result of a fight at the residence with a 31 year old male. The identity of this person will not be released at this time due to ongoing investigation.
