Bellevue police are searching for a man who assaulted a female convenience store employee near 40th and Harrison Streets.
Police Chief Mark Elbert said an intoxicated man who caused a disturbance at the Tobacco Hut, 4011 Harrison St., was refused service shortly after 7 p.m. Wednesday.
Elbert said the man made further threats of violence when he was told to leave the property.
The employee walked outside to get the man's license plate number.
Surveillance video shows that the man punched the woman twice in the face as the pair stood talking outside the front door.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Bellevue Police Department at 402-293-3100.
