34-year old Jose Manuel Flores-Ramirez was taken into custody at Bonnie and Clyde's Muffler Shop on West Columbia Street.

The victim was struck twice in the ribs with a bat-sized steel pipe.

The confrontation reportedly began after Flores-Ramirez perceived a statement from the victim as a slur in reference to the suspect's mother.

After the assault, the victim was transported to a local emergency room for treatment of his injuries.

The suspect was then booked into the Franklin County Jail on an investigative hold for Assault.

Anyone with more information about this incident is asked to contact the Pasco Police Department at 509-628-0333.
