SAN DIEGO — San Diego police Monday sought a man who struck an employee at a North Park auto repair shop in the head with a hammer 13 times in an apparently unprovoked attack, leaving him critically injured, authorities said.

A surveillance camera at Jack’s Muffler Service on University Avenue near Mississippi Street recorded images of the suspect as he approached the employee, who was eating alone in the service bay around 8:10 p.m. Sunday, pulled out a hammer and struck the man in the head seven times, San Diego police Officer John Buttle said.

After the victim fell to the floor, the suspect looked around the business office, but didn’t take anything. He then headed back to the bay and proceeded to hit the victim in the head with the hammer six more times while he was on the ground, Buttle said.
