A 21-year-old Nottingham Avenue Northwest man suffered a beating that caused bleeding in his mouth, nose and around his head at 2:45 p.m. Friday. He was taken to ValleyCare TMH for treatment.

He said four male juveniles jumped him near the corner of Caleb Road and Linda Drive Northwest after one of them asked to use his cellphone.
