DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A 26-year-old man remained in a medically induced coma Sunday as authorities investigated the assault that injured him.

The Des Moines Register reports the Urbandale man was beaten severely outside a Des Moines sports bar early Sunday morning.

Witnesses told police the victim had been arguing with a group of men inside the bar before the assault.

Police found marijuana, a concealed weapons permit and firearms in the victim's vehicle, but they haven't been able to talk to the victim.

Police identified a suspect in the case with the help of a tip from the public, but the suspect wasn't immediately identified Sunday.
