CSI unit investigates after man suffers serious head injury in Sacramento apartment

Homicide detectives were called Monday afternoon after a man sustained a serious head injury inside a Southside Park apartment.

Sacramento Police Department and Sacramento Fire Department personnel responded to the 2100 block of 11th Street about 3:40 p.m. to find an adult male with significant head trauma, SPD spokesman Officer Eddie Macaulay said.

The man was taken to an area hospital, where he remained in critical condition as of late Monday night. Homicide detectives and SPD’s Crime Scene Investigations unit remained at the scene to collect evidence.

The circumstances surrounding the man’s injury remained unclear as of Tuesday morning, Macaulay said, and no arrests had been made as of Tuesday morning. Police do believe the incident, which ABC10 and FOX40 both reported as an assault, is isolated.
