Man says he was attacked with hammer

A man told police he was attacked with a hammer as he went to pick up his grandchildren Saturday.

According to a Richmond Coun­ty sheriff’s report, the 36-year-old said Demetrius Andrew Mack, 25, attacked him for no reason at Mack’s home on Mundy Road.

The victim said he was able to block one blow with his forearm, but another blow glanced off the left side of his head. The two fought, but when Mack became free he ran off, busting out the rear window of the victim’s 2012 Chevrolet Malibu as he fled, the report said.

The victim refused medical treatment but told police he wants to press charges.
