SEATTLE —

Police released surveillance images Friday of a man who attacked a convenience store employee with a ukulele in West Seattle.



According to police, a man and woman walked into a gas station near Delridge Way Southwest and Southwest Myrtle Street and tried to shoplift a six-pack of beer on the evening of Nov. 28.



A store employee confronted the two, but the man argued with the employee and hit the employee with a ukulele, which shattered the instrument and cut the victim's scalp.



The employee was taken to Highline Hospital to be treated, but gave officers a vague description of the man and woman.
Police are still investigating the incident.



Anyone with information is urged to call the Seattle Police Department at 206-684-5540.
