Police said a suspect faces assault and attempted murder charges after attacking a witness while trying to steal from a Salisbury convenience store.

An officer with the Salisbury Police Department on patrol in the area of the Wawa at 668 S. Salisbury Blvd. noticed a commotion at the gas station at about 5:18 p.m. Monday, according to a news release.

The officer approached and saw a 55-year-old man lying on the ground who appeared to have lacerations from being cut with a sharp object. Emergency medical personnel took the victim to TidalHealth Peninsula Regional for treatment.

Police said the man’s injuries were no longer considered to be life threatening as of Tuesday afternoon.

An investigation revealed a man walked into Wawa, went behind the service counter only for employees, took an item, then started walking toward the exit. A witness intervened, police said, to try and stop the man from leaving.
