Victim refused, and suspect left the scene.

However, “Officers made contact with (suspect),” who “explained that he was suffering from schizophrenia and had an episode. (Suspect said) he wanted to go to the hospital to get evaluated and seek treatment,” the report stated. Suspect was transported to Tennova Healthcare Turkey Creek for evaluation.
