MANY, La. (AP) — The police chief of a Louisiana town is expected to return to work soon after suffering a stroke.

Many Police Chief Roger Freeman had a mild stroke Wednesday morning, news outlets reported. Mayor Ken Freeman, who isn’t related to Roger Freeman, said the chief has plans to be back at work Monday, KTBS-TV reported.

The police department doesn’t have an assistant chief, so a detective who is second-in-command was left in charge until the chief returns, news outlets reported.

Many is the parish seat of Sabine Parish and is located about 80 miles (129 kilometers) south of Shreveport.
