Man apprehended after hammer attack in West End convenience store

A man is undergoing mental health treatment after being apprehended for allegedly assaulting two people inside a CVS with a hammer in the West End.

The incident occurred at around 10:45 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 11, at The Shops at Mark Center (1458 N. Beauregard Street).

“The male suspect entered the store and assaulted a 56-year-old male customer with a handheld blunt object,” police said in a news release. “The suspect then fled the store and was later discovered in an apartment complex nearby with self-inflicted wounds to his head.”

A 56-year-old man suffered serious, but non-life-threatening injuries. A 19-year-old woman was also injured in the incident, but not by the suspect, police said.

The suspect has not been charged, and is being treated for injuries while undergoing a mental health evaluation, according to police. An email from police noted that there have been no arrests in connection to the assault.

Anyone with information on the incident is urged to contact Alexandria Police Detective Matthew Kramarik at 703-746-6650, or the police non-emergency line at 703-746-4444. Callers can remain anonymous.
