HEMPSTEAD (WABC) -- Police arrested a suspect they say attacked another man in the bathroom of a deli on Long Island Tuesday.
According to detectives, the 48-year-old victim was in the bathroom of the Polo Mini Market and Deli at 46 Fulton Avenue in Hempstead when 39-year-old Jose Nelson Oliva-Ochoa entered and struck the victim repeatedly about the head with an unknown object.
Oliva-Ochoa reportedly fled the scene. The victim was removed to a local hospital, where he was treated for lacerations and contusions to his head.
