Chiropractic clinic employee slashed with blade, police looking for attacker


An employee at a metro area chiropractic clinic was injured Wednesday morning after being attacked by a man wielding a blade.

Columbia Heights Police Sergeant Ted Fischer told BringMeTheNews the incident happened at the Northeast Chiropractic Clinic at 3984 Central Ave. NE.

There was a fight in the office between a man and a male employee, during which the employee was slashed at least twice by a box cutter-like blade.

There had been suggestions on Facebook that the victim was possibly sprayed with a substance during the attack, but Sgt. Fischer would not comment on that.

The victim required stitches and so has not yet had a full interview with police, as such it's not clear at this stage what relationship there is between victim and attacker, police said.

Police are looking for the man thought to be responsible for the attack, who is described as a white male in his 50s or 60s, wearing a black leather jacket.

Anyone with information can call Columbia Heights Police on 763-706-8100.
