Plymouth Man Beaten, Left For Dead: Victim’s Family

News

Plymouth, Luzerne County — A man is fighting for his life after police said he was found unconscious in his apartment above a bar.

The owner of Rox 52 in Plymouth said David Roskowski has worked there for 13 years, and he was nearly beaten to death Monday night.

The owner of the bar told Eyewitness News off-camera that someone came in through the back, brought David upstairs, and assaulted him.  He said David was put inside a closet and left to die.

Fortunately, the owner and police went to the bar because the security alarm went off, and they heard him banging on the door.

The owner of the bar said the person responsible for this crime only got away with a drawer full of change.
    
His loved ones said David is in critical condition.  He suffered brain damage and had surgery.

Police have not said if they have any suspects, but anyone with information is asked to call 9-1-1.
