A Manhattan man has been charged after an altercation with another man early Thursday morning in the 1000 block of Sunset Ave.
According to RCPD, 36-year-old Henry Lige III was arrested on charges of aggravated battery and interference with law enforcement officers. Lige is accused on punching a 24-year-old victim several times in the face during an argument, causing multiple facial and head lacerations. The victim was treated at Ascension Via Christi before being transferred to KU Medical Center in Kansas City where police say he remains in stable condition.
Lige is also accused of barricading himself in his home for a short time when officers advised him he was under arrest.
He was initially jailed but was released after posting a $17,000 bond.
