MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - Memphis police are searching for a person in connection with an attack that sent a 68-year-old man to The MED.

According to a police report, the attack happened on January 27 as the victim exited the Mapco convenience store at Poplar and Belvedere in Midtown.

Police believe the man was attacked by several men, but after the beating was able to walk east along Poplar.

The victim made it about a block to Evergreen street, where Memphis police officers found him suffering from head wounds.  Unfortunately, the man was so disoriented that he has not been able to give any details about what happened.

However, investigators have released a picture of a man they say was inside the convenience store at the time of the attack.  You can see the picture on this page.

Police are asking anyone with information about the person to call Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH.
