Responding to a report of a fight Sunday on East Fifth Street, officers found Daniel Springer, 39, sitting on his front steps, bleeding from his right ear. Springer told officers that he had been struck in the head with a baseball bat after he confronted between four and six black men about selling drugs on his street. He said the men fled in a dark-colored SUV. Springer was transported to the emergency room by Tri-County ambulance and later flown by medical helicopter to a Pittsburgh hospital. Officers attempted to interview a man who reported seeing the end of the assault, but he could not be located.
