BRANT, NY (WKBW) A 23-year-old man is still unconscious following an apparent assault near Evangola State Park.

A passing driver discovered the man on the side of Lakeshore Road early Sunday morning. The victim, whose identity has not been released, was flown to Erie County Medical Center by Mercy Flight with facial fractures.

New York State Police say their investigation has led them to believe the victim had visited several beach clubs in the hours leading up to the incident.
