LEWISBURG (WVVA) - The Frankford man police say is responsible for a vicious assault has turned himself in.

29-year-old Justin Robert Pack turned himself in at 11:40 a.m. on Thursday to the Greenbrier County Sheriffs Department after being charged with the felony offense of unlawful wounding.

Police say Pack admitted to assaulting 25-year-old Joshua Quick of Trout, Greenbrier County.

On Sunday at 2 p.m., Quick, who is an employee of Godfather's Pizza, was assaulted while overseeing changing gas prices on gas pumps located at the Little General adjacent to the Godfather's Pizza, just north of Lewisburg.

While working, Quick was smoking a cigarette. Pack then allegedly confronted Quick about smoking near gas pumps.

The altercation apparently turned violent when Pack allegedly hit Quick in the face, taking him to the ground. Reports say that Quick's head was repeatedly smashed into the ground.

When Corporal Gary Workman of the Greenbrier County Sheriffs Department arrived on scene, Quick was unable to talk or respond.

Quick was taken to Charleston Area Medical Center, where he is currently receiving treatment.

Currently he is in an induced coma.

Pack was questioned on scene, but charges were not made immediately. Corporal Workman says the charges were delayed because they would depend on the state of the victim.

Pack is now free on a $15,000 dollar bond.
