Employee Attacked With Hammer

KSAL StaffNovember 11, 2014

Dodge City police have arrested a man who they say attacked a grocery store employee with a hammer.

The victim called police on Monday after the man left the Dillons store and walked to Family Dollar. Police say the man refused to stop when confronted by an officer, who unsuccessfully tried to shoot the man with a stun gun. The officer then pushed the man to the ground and arrested him.

The suspect was taken to the Ford County jail and charged with aggravated battery. His identity hasn’t been released.

Police say the employee suffered minor injuries. It’s unclear if the employee was taken to a hospital.
