Lewis said the victim sustained major injuries to his head and face.  

“He was transported to a local hospital and has subsequently undergone several surgeries in an attempt to repair the damage,” he said.

The suspect, is described as white or Hispanic, mid to late 30’s, 6’0″-6’3″, 230-270 pounds, shaved head having a mustache and goatee.
