West Virginia State Police are looking for an armed robber who assaulted a 71-year-old businessman in Maysel, West Virginia with a baseball bat.

William B. Vineyard, 71, said he’d just left Jesse Sez Restaurant/Bar in Maysel after closing when an unknown white male approached him, struck him with the bat and robbed him of a large sum of money, West Virginia Senior Trooper B.E. Young of the Clay Detachment reported.

Vineyard’s grandson chased the suspect into the woods, but gave up the chase when the suspect told him he had a gun.

Vineyard, who suffered injuries to his face, arm and shoulder, said his assailant was about 5’ 8” - to 5’10” tall and was wearing dark jeans, a hooded sweat shirt and a mask.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the West Virginia State Police.
