Cape Girardeau police were investigating a beating Tuesday afternoon at 4 o’clock on North Middle Street.

Darin Hickey of the Cape Girardeau Police Department says the injury was not life-threatening. Hickey said prescription medication was taken from the victim, and police were interviewing several witnesses. The suspect was not in custody, but Hickey said police believe the two people knew each other. They are still investigating and do not feel the public is in danger.
