A man was knocked unconscious and a ketchup bottle poured over his head on Sunday close to the 1200 block of South Loop 288 in Denton Texas.
The man was found by a store employee the next morning as the employee was watering plants in a shed near the store. The store employee thought the man was covered in blood and called the police.
The police responded and the victim told the officer that he had purchased some items from the store and walked into a shed. Someone hit him in the back of the head and he lost consciousness. He awoke with a lump on the back of his head, scrapes on his knees and his pants pulled down to his ankles. He was covered in ketchup, he said. Upon investigating the scene, the officer found a pool of ketchup and a note reading "die yuppie scum" and "wose next" in letters cut from magazines.
The victim was not sexually assaulted and had suffered only minor injuries and had no idea what the notes referred to nor why anyone would want to hurt him or sauce him with ketchup.
An investigation is continuing. Let's hope they find the culprits!!
