The Waterbury Police are looking to identify the suspect involved in an assault and robbery on Monday.
The owner of the family-owned convenience store said the man came into the store located on 52 E. Farm Street around 4:30 pm.
She said the man came in, brought detergent to the counter and asked how much it costs. When she came from behind the counter, the suspect put her in a chokehold and dragged her to the ground. The man continued to punch her in the face and threatened to beat her with a rock.
Police confirmed that the woman was hit by the rock in the back of the head but the woman couldn't remember when NBC Connecticut spoke with her. The rock was left at the scene.
The suspect ran off with the victim's cellphone and other unidentified items.
A surveillance video shows the suspect coming up behind an unidentified person and choking them. The two can be seen grappling with one another before the suspect fled on foot.
The suspect is described as male, 5'8" thin build in his early 20's. Anyone with information can contact the Waterbury Detective Bureau at 203-574-6941.
