A felony arrest warrant has been issued for 27-year-old Chase Headspeth (DOB: 09/26/1991) for his role in an assault that occurred inside a restaurant located at 1024 24th Avenue NW on February 25.

The investigation indicates that at approximately 8:46 p.m. Headspeth entered the restaurant and physically assaulted 76-year-old Russell Lohr. Investigators believe that Lohr had contacted Headspeth in his vehicle about parking across the restaurant’s two handicap parking spaces before entering the restaurant. Shortly after, Lohr was at the counter placing an order when investigators believe Headspeth entered the restaurant and physically assaulted Lohr, striking him in the head three times. Despite employee efforts to restrain Headspeth, he left the restaurant and drove away.

The incident remains under investigation.
