Do you know him?

Police are asking for help identifying the man who attacked a customer at an area gas station with an ax, said the Hamden Police Department.

The incident took place around 4:30 p.m., Friday, Nov. 9, at the  Gulf Gas Station, at 1624 Dixwell Ave., said the Hamden Police.

According to police, an investigation revealed that the victim, a 50-year-old Hamden resident, was involved in a verbal dispute with an unidentified customer. 

The customer “became very upset” when the victim was backing his motor vehicle near the gas pumps, police said.

The attacker, described as a Hispanic male, in his 50s, 5-foot-5, medium building with black curly hair, then removed an ax handle from his vehicle and struck the victim several times in the torso, police said.

He then fled from the scene in a silver minivan.  Hamden Fire Rescue responded and rendered medical assistance to the victim.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Officer Robert O’Neill of the Hamden Police Department Patrol Division at 203-230-4030.
