Witnesses said two men were throwing punches in the resident's front driveway, and one was reportedly hit in the head with a hatchet and baseball bat.
26 year old jack Raymond Salberg was rushed to Mercy Medical Center with severe head injuries. 42 year old Brian Duane Rice was taken to the Douglas Count jail, and is facing felony assault charges.
