A Buffalo man was taken to Erie County Medical Center by a relative after he was struck in the head by his hammer-wielding girlfriend early Saturday morning in the city’s Bailey-East Delavan area, police reported.

The victim told Northeast District police that he was trying to stop the woman from fighting with a minor when she attacked him with a hammer inside a Roebling Avenue home. He suffered a laceration and was bloody after being struck on the right side of his head.

No immediate arrest has been made in the assault, but police recovered a hammer from the home’s kitchen.
