COLUMBUS (Ken Hines) -- Police are trying to find a man suspected of beating a woman on Thursday afternoon in the Franklinton area, leading to the victim's hospitalization.
Police traveled to the area of West Broad Street and Avondale Avenue after receiving reports of a woman running and screaming in an alley.
Neither a victim nor a suspect were in the alley when police arrived, but a woman who had traveled to Mount Carmel West Hospital for treatment soon told investigators she was attacked and chased in the area by a man in a gold SUV.
The victim is listed in stable condition at Mount Carmel West. Police have not released her identity, or that of her alleged attacker.
