Police posted surveillance footage of a man who assaulted a mentally handicapped gas station employee in hopes that help from the public will lead them to making an arrest.
Around 11:30 a.m. on Nov. 15, police said a man in the parking lot of Uncle Willie’s Gas Station on Fox Street near Westmoreland in Tioga got in an argument with the employee outside the building.
Cops said the man retrieved a bottle from a white work truck he was driving and walked back into the gas station.
Police said the man sprayed an unknown substance into the clerk’s eyes and ran off. The substance caused a burning sensation in the man’s eyes, but he was otherwise not injured.
