LEAVENWORTH, Kan. -- An employee at a federal halfway house in Leavenworth was hospitalized after he was reportedly attacked by a resident there.

Leavenworth police said a 59-year-old male employee was severely beaten around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday by a male resident at the Grossman Center, a federal halfway house and drug and alcohol rehabilitation center near Brewer Place and Muncie Road.

Paramedics reportedly rushed the victim to the University of Kansas Hospital in critical condition. Investigators told FOX 4 the man has "severe head injuries."

Police said the suspect, 34-year-old Cameron Walton, beat the employee apparently with his fists inside the facility.

A spokesman for the Grossman Center said in a statement that Walton attacked as he was being released.

Walton was charged with felony aggravated battery. Investigators said the worker will undergo surgery, and are now working to determine what caused the assault.

The statement also said the worker remains in critical condition.

Walton remains in jail and is scheduled for a court appearance on Friday.
