Police look for pair who hit man with beer mug and tried to run him over


WAUSAU (WAOW) -- A man is still in the hospital after police said he was attacked at a Wausau bar early Thursday morning. The suspects are still on the loose.

Police said a fight broke out at Sidetracked bar on south 3rd Avenue just before 2 AM. Investigators said the victim was hit in the face with a beer mug before two suspects tried to run him over.

"After trying to run down the victim in the parking lot, the victim punched the driver's side window and it shattered but it still remained intact at that point," said Wausau police detective Jeff Strobach.

Police said they think the fight started because of a pool game. Strobach said the victim needed surgery.

Wausau police are looking for two men driving a dark maroon car with chrome accessories, like door handles and rims. Along with the shattered window, police said the windshield is also cracked.

If you have any information about this incident, you can call Detective Strobach at (715)261-7815.
