A woman and her son were hospitalized after Lancaster Police say a man beat them and left them in their home.
It happened around 3:00 Saturday morning at a house on Pleasant View Drive in Garrard County. When police got to the scene, they found Lizabeth Guy unconscious with severe head and body trauma. Her young son was also hurt. They were both taken to UK Hospital.
Police say they know who is responsible but they are not releasing his name yet.
"Officers are currently searching for the suspect who is at large and warrants are being taken for his arrest now," says Chief Rodney Kidd with Lancaster Police Department.
Folks living in the area say this kind of thing does not happen in their neighborhood.
"I just hope they find out what happened to her and find out who did it," says Shay Ison, a neighbor. "It's very crazy for this to happen here, this neighborhood is very quiet."
Guy was in critical condition at last check. The condition of her son is not known.
