Police Find Man lying in Ditch, passed out

A local man was transported to the hospital Friday morning by Emergency Medical Services, according to a Riley County Police Department report.

Bradley Murray, 25, of the 1800 block of Platt Street, was transported to Mercy Regional Health Center and then transported to Stormont-Vail Hospital in Topeka, according to the report.

Police found Murray in a ditch near the 1700 block of North Manhattan Avenue. Capt. Kurt Moldrup said Murray was passed out, semi-conscious, appeared to be intoxicated and had a swollen left eye.

Moldrup said Murray refused medical treatment, but because he was not coherent, EMS treated him anyway.

Murray was listed as code red, an unstable condition, as of Friday morning, according to the report. He has serious head injuries, according to the RCPD report. The incident happened at about 1:45 a.m.

There is no indication of robbery; Murray’s wallet was still on him, therefore the public’s help is needed, Moldrup said. Police have no witnesses and the case is under investigation, he said.
