New Bedford Police are hunting for a man who attacked an employee Thursday night at the Family Dollar Store in the South End.

Two female employees entered the women's bathroom at the West Rodney French Boulevard store around 9:30pm and discovered a man there, dressed in black clothing.

The women ran from the ladies room and notified a male employee. He ordered the man to leave. The man then pulled out some sort of spray, either pepper spray or mace, and sprayed the employee before fleeing the store.

The employee did not require medical treatment and nothing was taken from the store.

The suspect is described as a light-skinned male, about 5-9 and 150 lbs., and was dressed in all black.

Anyone with information should contact Police at 508 992-7463.
