After asking for the public’s help earlier this week, Wabash Police Department (WPD) officers have located a witness in a recent alleged battery incident.

An alleged battery “resulting in serious bodily injury” occurred shortly after 1 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 24 next to Smitty’s Bar in the 10 block of South Wabash Street, said WPD public information officer Capt. Matt A. Benson on Tuesday.
