A man left another man with life-threatening injuries Wednesday morning after hitting him with a stick, police say.

Around 4:30 a.m., a witness driving by 5th and Bryant streets called police to report what they saw: a  51-year-old suspect who chased and hit a 38-year-old victim with a stick. The younger man fell to the ground before the suspect jumped on him and dealt at least one punch, police say. 

Police took the suspect into custody and the victim went to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.
