A 33-year-old man was found injured near a small bridge on Brendle Drive, off Cherry Ridge Road late Sunday night.
Bastrop Police Chief Allen Campbell said the victim, Christopher Rinehart, from Crossett, Arkansas, was more than likely assaulted and thrown off the bridge, but the details are still unknown.
"We are investigating it," he said. "It is unclear if he fell off the bridge or was assaulted, but it was reported as an assault. The victim is in a local hospital recovering from injuries."
The victim was listed in stable condition, and is recovering from injuries. Campbell said information is currently limited.
