Police are searching for a suspect after he allegedly assaulted and robbed a man early Sunday morning.
Shortly before 1 a.m., Paris police officers were called to the 1300 block of Clarksville Street for reports of an assault. Paris Police Lt. John Berry said when officers arrived, they were told an unknown black man, tall with a slim build, had assaulted the victim by punching him repeatedly in the head.
“The unknown suspect then took items from the complainant’s pockets and fled the scene,” Berry said. “The investigation is ongoing.”
