Police said that they are searching for an individual wanted in connection with an assault that took place on May 3 in Flushing.
Just after 6:30 p.m., a 28-year-old man was paying for groceries inside of the Chung Fat Supermarket, located at 41-82 Main St., and engaged in a verbal dispute with an unknown individual. The victim exited the location and was followed by the individual, who picked up a rock from the ground and struck the victim on the left side of the face before fleeing in an unknown direction, police said. The victim sustained bruising and a small laceration to his face, although he refused medical treatment.
The suspect is described as an Asian man in his mid-20s who is approximately five-feet-eight-inches with short, straight black hair. He was last seen wearing blue jeans, tan work boots and a white t-shirt with the world “Rowland” written on the front.
