  • A man attacked by at least two other men in Taft Tuesday afternoon isn't cooperating with police.
    Taft Police Lt. Pete Aranda said officers responded to a report of an assault underway in the 300 block of Lucard at about 2:30 p.m.
    Witnesses reported seeing a man on a bicycle being chased by suspects in a vehicle and later assaulted by at least two men.
    All parties had fled by the time police arrived, but officers located the victim, identified as Nathaniel Jamison, at a house on the 400 block of Lucard.
    He initially declined treatment but later changed his mind and was taken to Mercy Southwest Hospital for treatment of bruises and abrasions, Aranda said.
    Police obtained a description of the suspect vehicle and were able to contact the suspects, Aranda said.
    They were interviewed and released.
