Toledo Police are asking for help catching a Lorenzo Leake, who is wanted for felonious assault after he allegedly assaulted a bar employee, breaking his jaw, after a fight at the bar.
Police say the Leake got into an argument with another customer at the Myler's Rock Garden Bar on Telegraph Road back on March 11. As the suspect was leaving the bar, police say he hit an employee in the face, breaking his jaw. Police say the employee was not involved in the argument.
A security guard also suffered minor injuries in the incident.
"Obviously this is a very violent person. To hit someone like that, that hard for no reason, somebody that didn't do anything to you, didn't say anything to you, is really just a, it's really a violent act. Obviously a person that needs to get off the streets and pay for his crime," said Toledo Police sergeant Joe Heffernan.
Leake is a 33-year-old black male. Police say he is approximately 5'8" tall and weighs 210 pounds.
