ROCHESTER, Minn. – A GameStop employee was knocked out after getting hit in the head with a hammer before awaking and running to a nearby business to get help.
Rochester police say the 23-year-old male employee remembers two people asking him about games before waking up covered in blood Monday night around 8:50 p.m. at 3780 Marketplace Dr. NW.
