On Friday May 13, 2016 at approximately 7:30 pm a female employee of Lowe’s, located 2338 Shorter Ave. Rome, Ga., was sprayed with pepper spray and strangled unconscious by an unknown assailant in the parking lot at that location. We are seeking the community’s assistance with identifying the attacker. The only information that we have been able to ascertain at this time, from the victim and witnesses that were present at the time of assault, is that the unknown suspect is a middle aged white male that left the incident location in a late 1990’s or early 2000’s black Ford F150 extended cab truck, traveling west bound on Shorter Ave toward Alabama.

If anyone witnessed this incident or has information concerning this unwarranted act of violence, please contact Investigator Ryan Hutchins at phone number (706) 238-5127 or via email at [email protected]
