THOMASVILLE, N.C. (WGHP) — Thomasville detectives are asking for the public’s help identifying two suspects involved in an attack on a 75-year-old man last week.

On Dec. 2 at 10:25 a.m., Larry Ringler was driving west on Unity Street toward Blair Street in his 2006 Dodge truck when he saw two vehicles stopped in his lane, according to a Thomasville Police Department news release.

Ringler was slowing down when a silver Nissan Juke, which was behind Ringler, didn’t stop and hit his truck.

Ringler got out to survey the damage and speak to the driver of the Nissan Juke when a second vehicle, a white four-door SUV, pulled behind the Nissan.

A male suspect got out of the SUV and attacked Ringler by hitting him in the face. Ringler fell down, and the suspect kicked him in the face, police said.
