“The victim was found by a customer who immediately called 911,” McMann said. “Responding officers arrived on the scene and contacted the victim inside the business with a head wound. It appeared the suspect attempted to restrain the victim but was unsuccessful.”

McMann said the victim was treated and release after medical treatment.

McMann said investigators are following up on leads and checking with nearby businesses for any video footage of the suspect.
