Winona man uses hammer to smash TVs and electronics at Target

WINONA, Minn. (AP) - A man used a hammer to leave a path of destruction at a Target store in Winona.

Police say the 39-year-old man smashed big-screen televisions and destroyed other electronics Saturday evening before taking a swing at an officer.

The Winona Daily News reports customers ran from the store as the man swung his hammer. One witness said the man had a ``glazed look' in his eyes and was ``walking like Frankenstein.'

Officers chased the man through the store and used a Taser gun to subdue him. He was taken to Winona Health for a behavioral evaluation.
