By jeanne starmack


A man who was severely injured at a city bar has improved, and police said they had no updates in the case Thursday.

John Gramelt said Thursday that his son, Amos J. Gramelt, 29, of Beechwood Drive, has improved since being admitted to intensive care at St. Elizabeth Health Center.

Amos Gramelt was beaten while he was at the Wonder Bar on West Liberty Street between 1 and 2 a.m. Tuesday, his parents told police.

His parents found him in his bed at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, John Gramelt said.

They took him to Northside Medical Center, and he was transferred to St. Elizabeth.

Gramelt was admitted to the hospital with a fractured skull, bleeding in his brain and facial fractures, the police report says.

Gramelt told his parents bar employees cleaned him up and he was put into his car to drive home.

He does not remember how he got home or who assaulted him, they told police.

John Gramelt said bar employees should have helped his son.

“They should have called paramedics or police,” he said.

No one in bar management could be reached to comment.

The bar’s owner is out of town, said an employee who answered the phone.
