Chesterfield County Police are investigating the apparent assault of a local attorney last week.
The attorney’s name is George H. Edwards, according to another local attorney.
Police issued a press release about the alleged assault of a man in a hallway of an office building in the 10100 block of Krause Road south of Iron Bridge Road on Wednesday, Aug. 7. The call came in about 5:45 p.m., Lt. Brad Conner said.
A person notified police that the injured man was found on the floor with significant injuries to his face. The victim was transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries, Conner said.
As of Friday morning, the victim was in critical but stable condition, Conner said.
Police have only been able to conduct a limited interview with the victim, Conner said.
On Saturday, Aug. 10, Conner said, “It does not appear that the victim was targeted due to his employment status as a lawyer. Police still do not have a suspect description.”
Sheriff Karl Leonard said that extra security was provided for Chesterfield County Circuit Court Judge Edward A. Robbins Jr. “for a short period immediately after the assault occurred because at the time the circumstances were still unraveling. Soon after however, we felt there was no reason to continue with it.”
