STAMFORD, Conn. (WTNH)– Stamford police are looking for a suspect they say attacked a man for no reason last week.

Police say the 47-year-old victim was waiting to pick up his children at the corner of West Main Street and Rose Park Avenue last Wednesday when the suspect approached him and was swearing. They say the suspect then bumped the victim and attacked him, punching him in the head and chest. According to police, the victim ran to the convenience store at 190 West Main Street, but the suspect followed him, spitting at the victim and store clerk before fleeing.

According to police, the victim suffered cuts and bruises to his face. They say neither he nor store clerk know the suspect or what prompted the attack.

Police describe the suspect as a Hispanic male, possibly Puerto Rican or Dominican, wearing a dark winter coat, dark pants, and a dark knit cap. They say the suspect had a beard but no mustache, and a contusion or facial disparity on his left cheek. He may have been under the influence of drugs or alcohol, according to police.

Anyone with information about this attack is asked to call Stamford police at (203) 977-4417.
