• Man assaulted on North Side, taken to hospital with multiple head wounds


    PITTSBURGH - A man was rushed to the hospital after being assaulted on the North Side. 

    Police said the incident happened around 1 p.m. Tuesday in the 100 block of Eloise Street. 

    Officers found the male victim – who was not identified – with "multiple wounds to the head." He was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

    Investigators said a suspect ran from the scene before being taken into custody near Merchant Street and Martindale Street.

    That suspect -- identified as Lasalle Bradford, 49 -- was charged with one count of aggravated assault.

    It is unclear what was used in the assault, but Channel 11 crews observed authorities place a large brick into an evidence container at the scene.

    The investigation is ongoing.
