CLARKSDALE, Miss. (AP) -- Mississippi police say a man entered the Clarksdale Police Department and attacked an on-duty dispatcher, leaving her with a bleeding brain and broken arm.

Stacy Clark is charged with aggravated assaulted. Police say Barbara King was the only dispatcher on duty Wednesday when Clark entered the building and asked for property that had been left there. Police say King tried to reach officers, but they were all out on patrol.

Police say Clark then began beating King, who managed to dispatch officers for help. Police say Clark continued to beat King until officers arrived and pulled him off of her. King also suffered several fractures to the face and will have her first facial surgery Tuesday.

It's unclear if Clark has a lawyer.
