Thirty minutes ago, I was attacked

About 30 minutes ago, I heard a knock at my door.

When I answered it, a tall man (at least taller than I am) with dark hair and a dark mustache , appearing to be in his 30s, asked, "Are you Mr. Turner?"

I said I was and the man drew back his right hand and punched me in the nose, causing me to fall to the floor. He walked off without saying another word.

Stunned and lying on the floor, I was not able to go the window to see what kind of vehicle the man was driving in or whether he was walking.

From what I was able to determine, though he said nothing, his actions were a response to my posts yesterday and today about the Rangeline Sonic.

I am posting photos of my face and my knee, which developed a knot by it due to the fall.

As I write this, I am waiting for the Joplin Police Department to arrive, then I plan to go to the emergency room.

Hopefully, I will be able to provide an update soon.

Unacceptable. I am so sorry.

Mary Cummins said...

I'm so sorry that happened to you. Hope you feel better. Don't ever open the door until you know who it is or what they want.

Never answer your door to an unannounced person without a gun in your hand.

maybe you should actually research ur reports of what you call facts- and you wouldnt be attacked by people you dont know. From what I cam tell you make more enemies than you fo friends by your manner in which you choose to report issues in this area.

Yeah I am betting its the moron he did the report on. I looked up his jail pic and it fits the discription perfectly. Punch an older man in the face..what next? You have already done other dispicable things.

I am sorry that the guy done this to you. Thank GOD you are going to be okay. Please be careful. Praying for you.

Steve Holmes said...

bam7269: Please tell us what's wrong with the manner in which Randy reports the issues. Or is it that he reports the issues at all?

If the guy who punched Randy is the same one with the Linkedin page, it's revealing that he doesn't list his employment at Sonic.

Sorry Mr. Turner. I hope the police are able to catch this creep. Keep speaking your mind, someone doesn't like the truth and isnt smart enough to debate you.

Concerned citizen said...

Veronica or Demonica you are bitter,bitter...trust you never get attackek.YOU are perfect.

No research needed to determine that you're an idiot. Whether you believe or support what Mr. Turner reports or not, supporting violence only shows your ignorance.

Mr. Turner is a reporter there fore he reports stories. He`s good at what he does. He didn`t deserve to be treated like that. That guy`s a BULLY!!! If it is the same guy,I hope he gets what he deserves.

Who is the franchise owner that hired the accused child rapist?

Anyone condoning this act is a coward, hope he gets caught.

VonKolroth said...

I wouldn't be surprised if someone who doesn't concern themselves with sexually harassing minors with an obvious lack of need for consent wouldn't be above sucker punching an older man.

You didn't deserve that, but I'm not surprised. There are some real dirtbags out there.

Funny thing, the Joplin Globe doesn't seem to have anything about this on its web page, but KOAM has it as a top story. I wonder why that is.

Randy maybe you should consider other peoples feelings when writing your opinion bc that is all it is is your opinion there are always other circumstances involved in any situation and voicing an opinion on something with out knowing everything about the situation is going to cause conflict. I am really glad whom ever this was still carried the old fashion way of dealing with things and only punched you, now days you dont see this much they simply drive up and shoot you. so maybe you should not be so opinionated when it comes to personal opinions about other people that you dont personally know. just sayin
