PARK CITY, Utah — Park City Police hope someone can help them identify the man accused of assaulting another man at a grocery store earlier this month.

According to a Park City PD Facebook post, the suspect was standing too close to the victim in a checkout line on November 12. The victim told the suspect to back away and an argument ensued.

"The victim completed his transaction and exited the store. The suspect followed the victim and re-engaged the argument. The suspect struck the victim twice in the head with his fist or hand before leaving," the post said.

Anyone with information that may help police identify the assault suspect is urged to call the Dispatch Office at 435-615-5500 or email Lt. Little at
