New London – City police said they are investigating the assault of a 21-year-old man they found in an "unresponsive state" at a West Coit Street residence early Thursday night.

The victim, who is from Waterford, had been reported missing by his parents, who knew their son would be at the West Coit Street address, according to Deputy Police Chief Peter Reichard. Officers from New London and Waterford who went to the home at 5:43 p.m. to conduct a welfare check on the man found him in an "unresponsive state" with contusions on his body and face.

City firefighters and paramedics treated him at the scene and transported him to the hospital for treatment. His condition was not immediately available.

The assault was not believed to have taken place at the West Coit Street residence where the victim was located, according to Reichard. The detective bureau is investigating and has asked anyone with information to call them at (860) 447-1481.
