A Sioux Falls man has been hospitalized with life-threatening injuries after police say he was beaten by two teenage girls over the weekend in a house in the city's northwest side.

"During [a] party we had 16-year-old and 17-year-old girls punch a 55-year-old man several times in the head. We know they punched him. We are not sure if any objects were used," explained Sioux Falls Police Department Public Information Officer Sam Clemens.

"This continued on for a good amount of time. Eventually, people kind of left the party. The man stayed behind in his home. It was Saturday night when some neighbors found he was unresponsive. He was sent to the hospital. Doctors discovered he had a 'brain bleed' which is life threatening."

Clemens says the two girls allegedly involved in the attack have been arrested.

"He is still in the hospital. We were able to backtrack and figure out what happened. We found the two teenagers. Both of them were arrested for aggravated assault."

Clemens says it's not known what prompted the attack. The suspects had been drinking.
