UPDATE: He surrendered on Tuesday.

From Philadelphia Police:

On February 20, 2014, at approximately 4:50PM, 16th District Officers were called to Presbyterian Hospital located at 3800 Powelton Avenue for a report of an assault. Upon arrival of the officer he was met by a witness. The Witness stated that he and the complainant, a 46 year old male were at 49th and Lancaster Avenue going to the store.

The witness left the store prior to the complainant, and went back to their work truck. The witness then heard the noise of someone falling to the ground and believed it was the complainant slipping on ice. The witness exited his truck, and observed the offender standing over top of the complainant holding a hammer.

The witness observed blood, and the complainant on the ground. The witness got a bar from the truck, and chased the offender for approximately two blocks prior to losing him around Master and Lancaster Avenue. The witness went back to the location of occurrence, and found the complainant bleeding heavily, and unresponsive. The witness then drove the complainant to Presbyterian Hospital where he was later transferred to HUP due to the trauma to his head.

On Sunday, February 23, 2014, Southwest Detectives went to The Hospital of University of Pennsylvania to speak with the complainant. The complainant was awake and alert, but was not able to communicate. The victim has a large laceration on his head that was stitched closed during surgery to release pressure on the brain. The victim will have to go through intensive speech therapy in order to verbally communicate again.

Through an intense investigation by Southwest Detectives a suspect was identified, and a warrant has been issued.

Suspect: Nathanial Maybin, 29 year old male from the 800 block of S. 56th Street

***Anyone with any information on the whereabouts of Maybin please contact Southwest Detectives or dial 911***
