Man hospitalized after pistol whipping in Ashtabula

ASHTABULA — Police say an Ashtabula man was severely pistol whipped at a residence in the city where he was not welcomed.

According to police, K-9 Officer Kero alerted his partner, Officer Christopher DeFina of a suspicious person outside of Huntington Bank, 4366 Main Ave., Wednesday night.

DeFina discovered a severely beaten 27-year-old Ashtabula man, who said he had been pistol whipped by a group of men.

DeFina called for an ambulance and the man was later flown by medical helicopter to a Cleveland hospital, Ashtabula Police Chief Robert Stell said.

Police went to the Ashtabula residence where the man said he was beaten up and was told the victim was not welcomed there, Stell said.

“They said they hit him with his own gun,” he said.

No arrests have been made but the matter is under investigation.

Police would not release any other details, pending the investigation.
