Police: Wichita man strikes brother with hatchet

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita police are searching for a man who they say struck his brother in the head with a hatchet.

The 19-year-old victim was hospitalized early Thursday with a large laceration and skull fracture. Witnesses say he was arguing with his 20-year-old brother before the attack on Wednesday night. They say he was struck once in the head.

Police say the victim waited at home for about five hours before seeking treatment. He was listed in serious condition Thursday.

No other injuries were reported. Police haven’t released the brothers’ identities.
