LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) – Police have made a third arrest in connection to a beating last week at a Lancaster city park.
Bhanu Bhattarai, 26, turned himself to authorities in Columbus, Ohio on Thursday afternoon.
Bhattarai and two other Lancaster men were wanted for their roles in the April 11 beating of a 25-year-old Lancaster man.
Giri Ganesh, 27, and Ishwor Chhetri, 26, were arrested on Wednesday in Lancaster.
Investigators say the three offered the man a ride home but instead took him to Buchanan Park where they punched, kicked, and strangled him with a belt.
The victim was treated at Lancaster General Hospital for a broken nose, multiple facial fractures, and a brain bleed.
The victim told police he was at a city bar playing pool with the three men prior to the beating.
All three men have been charged with aggravated assault.
