A police report says that Juanita Ellen Mangun, of the 500 block Dover Road, was in a semiconscious state and had numerous bruises on her legs and arms.

She was found by her sister who had come by the house to take her to a doctor for treatment. The sister told police she had learned that Mangun had been assaulted. Police were looking for and hope to question Mangun's estranged husband.
