Condition upgraded for assault victim

The condition of a man who was assaulted at his South Monroe Street residence last month has been upgraded.

Detective Lt. Jason Windsor of the Tiffin Police Department said Lewis Slemmer, 50, who was found March 22 at his home unconscious and with head injuries consistent with an assault, is now conscious and recovering at Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center. He had been in serious condition in the Intensive Care Unit.

Windsor said Slemmer will be working with law enforcement on the case, which remains under investigation.
