(KAIR)--An Atchison man remained jailed Monday, following his Sunday arrest in connection with an alleged attack on another man.

A release from Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson says 20-year-old George Phillips was arrested for aggravated battery.

Wilson, in the release, explains that the alleged attack occurred in the 900 block of North 7th Street where Atchison Police were called, shortly after 1:30 Sunday afternoon, after a 20-year-old man reported that he had been confronted by a man he knew, identified as Phillips, who, during the confrontation, allegedly "struck the victim several times in the face with his fist."

According to Wilson, the victim was transported to Amberwell Atchison, by Atchison County EMS, for treatment of his injuries.

Phillips, Wilson says, "had left the area but was located by officers at his residence and taken into custody."

Following his arrest, Phillips was booked into the Atchison County Jail.
