Police: Man beaten at Uniontown won’t talk

A 37-year-old Scottsburg man beaten by several others early Friday morning in Uniontown has refused to talk about the incident that left him with a broken nose.

The incident was reported about 5:30 a.m. at the Marathon station at 11786 E. State Road 250.

The person reporting the incident told dispatchers there was a “large fight” in the parking lot and a man had been “badly beaten.”

County officers Jesse Hutchinson and Tom Barker interviewed the man, who also sustained other injuries, at Schneck Medical Center, according to Lt. Andy Wayman with the sheriff’s department.

“He did not cooperate,” Wayman said.

Without that cooperation, police have little information to go on,

he said.

Wayman said he was told by Hutchinson and Barker the incident began at a fast-food restaurant in Seymour. The man then left in a vehicle heading south and drove to the Uniontown convenience store, where the beating took place.

Wayman said the windshield of the man’s vehicle was broken.
