CHESTERFIELD, Va. (WRIC) — Authorities in Chesterfield said the will continue to investigate an aggravated assault that left a man with major injuries to his face Wednesday.
An officer with Chesterfield County Police said the victim was found in the hallway of a building in the 10100 block of Krause Road. A release from police said officers responded at around 6 p.m. for report of a man who was found on the floor with “significant injuries to his face.”
For the sake of privacy, authorities are not releasing the name of the victim but 8News did speak with a friend of his on Friday.
“It’s deeply disturbing,” Chesterfield attorney Brian Jones told 8News Friday.
Jones said hearing about what happened to his friend, who he confirmed is a lawyer around 70-years-old, has been difficult to comprehend.
Police said Saturday that the man is in critical but stable condition.
” At this point in the investigation, it does not appear that the victim was targeted due to his employment status as a lawyer,” Colonel Jeffrey S. Katz said in a release.
Police still do not have a suspect description.
Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact the Chesterfield County Police Department at 804-748-1251 or Crime Solvers at 804-748-0660
