Suspect Robbed And Assaulted Sam’s Discount Party Store Employee With A Hammer0
Battle Creek Police say a mask man robbed Sam’s Discount Party Store at 1205 West Dickman Road in Springfield early Sunday morning. The masked man arrived at the store at the same time the employee was locking up, according to the report.
Approximately 2:35 a.m., a masked man approached the employee while he was walking to his vehicle and demanded him unlock the store. The employee refused, so the suspect retaliated by hitting him in the head with a hammer and stealing his wallet, before fleeing the scene.
The suspect was described as a black man in his 20’s, wearing a mask and black clothing.
The employee was taken to an area hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. Additional details were not immediately available.
