Omaha Police responded to the 99 Cent Store at 4205 Redman Avenue at 9:24 a.m. Monday to investigate an assault. Officers spoke with the store owner who said the suspect entered the business, assaulted him with a baseball bat and demanded money from the register. When the victim advised that he could not reach the register due to injuries sustained during the assault, the suspect resumed assaulting the victim before eventually fleeing in an unknown direction. The suspect was described as a black male, approximately 6 feet tall, wearing a gray sweatshirt and blue medical mask.
The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is urged to contact Omaha Crime Stoppers at (402) 444-STOP, at www.omahacrimestoppers.org or on the P3 Tips mobile app.
