The Associated Press

MANCHESTER (AP) — Police say a man is facing an attempted murder charge after he attacked a Manchester store clerk with a baseball bat during a robbery over the weekend.

Gedeon Karasi was arrested Sunday morning after police allege he robbed a convenience store on Maple Street. Police say the 22-year-old Karasi attacked an employee before fleeing with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Police say the clerk was punched and struck several times with a baseball bat. He was taken to Elliot Hospital with head and facial injuries.

Karasi was taken to the hospital with a dog bite after a police dog helped track him down.

He is being charged with attempted murder, first-degree assault and robbery. It's not clear if he has an attorney who can comment on the charges.
