Police today asked for the public's help tracking down a suspect who attacked an Anaheim library employee for apparently no reason. Police released surveillance video of the attack, which occurred about 6:15 p.m. March 3 at the city's central library, at 500 W. Broadway, according to Anaheim police Sgt. Shane Carringer.

  The employee was walking through the library when the suspect stepped in front of him and hit him, knocking him down, Carringer said. The victim was knocked unconscious and was taken to an area hospital to be treated for a cut to his head. The suspect is a light-skinned Black man in his late 20s to early 30s, who is tall with a thin muscular build and weighs about 200 pounds. He has short hair or is bald and has a mustache. He was last seen wearing a black- hooded sweatshirt with red drawstrings, light brown pants, white shoes and a

Los Angeles Dodgers baseball cap. He may be a transient, as he carried multiple bags of clothing. Anyone who might have helpful information for investigators was asked to call investigators at 714-765-1583. Orange County Crime Stoppers will accept anonymous tips at 855-TIP-OCCS.
