A Gig Harbor man was left bleeding from his head March 18 after being punched at the Old Town Tavern in Silverdale.
A Kitsap County sheriff's deputy was flagged down by the 38-year-old victim at 1:58 a.m. in front of the Byron Street bar, according to sheriff's office reports. The man was bleeding from the left side of his head and told the deputy he was assaulted and did not remember what happened.
A witness told the deputy several men were causing problems earlier at the Old Town Bistro and one of the men was mad because the 38-year-old spoke to the man's girlfriend. After closing time, the 38-year-old was walking across the street to a parking lot east of the Old Town Tavern when one man ran up to him and punched him in the head several times before leaving the scene in a white vehicle. The 38-year-old was taken to the hospital by a friend.
