Landscaper behind sucker bite attack
EBENSBURG, Pa. (AP) - July 3, 2013 (WPVI) -- State police are looking for a landscaper who gave a western Pennsylvania man a sucker bite on his neck after luring the victim into his truck with the promise of a $20 grass-cutting job.
Troopers from Ebensburg don't know the suspect's name, but say the incident happened about 4 p.m. Sunday.
That's when the 21-year-old victim told police he was approached by the older, bald, tattooed man riding in landscaping truck.
Police say the victim got into the man's truck when he offered him the grass-cutting job a few blocks away, only to have the landscaper attack him. Police say the landscaper also hit the victim with a ratchet three or four times after the sucker bite.
The victim broke free by kicking the landscaper in the ribs and called police.
