NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Nashville businessman and former Tennessee labor commissioner Francis Guess has been attacked outside his home.
The Tennessean reports in this morning's editions that police are searching for a young man who robbed Guess and struck him in the head with a lawn mower blade Monday night.
Police say the 61-year-old Guess was bleeding heavily, but got into his home and called for help.
He remained in Vanderbilt University Medical Center in stable condition last night.
Guess is executive vice president of a Nashville investment firm. He served as labor commissioner under former governor Lamar Alexander and was appointed to the U.S. Civil Rights Commission by former President Ronald Reagan.
