San Diego Police Department officials said they are trying to determine the identity of an assault suspect who attacked his victim while wearing a mask that was similar to the one featured in the movie “Scream.”
The incident took place on Saturday in Linda Vista, according to investigators, and when the attack was over the suspect fled on foot. The victim was struck twice with a golf club, according to a report by Times of San Diego.
That man’s name has not been released but authorities did say he suffered from non-life threatening injuries. The motive behind the attack is not yet known, but a spokesperson for the SDPD said their suspect was last seen wearing black pants and a white shirt.
Witnesses said he was possibly light-skinned and may be in his 40s. Anyone who thinks they have information that could lead to the man’s whereabouts is asked to contact the San Diego Police Department tip line.
