Man with stungun flees U-M hospital after assaulting cafeteria worker, police say
A man pulled out a stungun and proceeded to assault a worker at a University of Michigan hospital building Friday night before fleeing the scene, police said.
The man reportedly assaulted a cafeteria manager and then ran out the south entrance of the C.S. Mott Children's Hospital around 6:40 p.m. He was still at large three hours later.
Police described the incident as an attempted armed robbery. A U-M spokeswoman said it was not clear whether the stungun was used during the assault. The victim, a man, was treated at the hospital and released.
U-M police officials said the suspect is a black male in his late 20s, about 5-foot-8 with hair in cornrows or dreadlocks. He was wearing a white T-shirt, black plants and a ski mask.
Anyone with information about the incident should contact the U-M Department of Public Safety at (734) 763-1131 or dial 9-1-1 in the event of an emergency.
