Two men attacked an employee at a business on Harding Road the night of May 16.

Police said the incident occurred at the Smoke Token Smoke Shop located at 411 Harding Place.

The two suspects, a white man of Hispanic descent and a black man, entered the business being verbally loud and upset about a pipe they had purchased that was broken.

According to police, when they were told to leave the store, one of the suspects picked up a pipe valued at several hundred dollars and walked towards the entrance.

Police said that the employee then locked the door to prevent him from shoplifting, and the suspects then began attacking the employee.

Another employee came from the back of the store with a gun, causing the suspects to hurriedly unlock the front door and leave.

Authorities reported that the suspects fled the parking lot in a Mercury Grand Marquis.

The employee suffered a gash to his head and was hospitalized after the attack.

Anyone who recognizes the men depicted in surveillance photographs is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.
