CORNING, Calif. -

A Corning man is recovering after he was attacked while working at the Tower Mart at 809 Solano Street.

Just after 1 a.m. Wednesday morning officers responded to a report of a man being attacked by several men with baseball bats.

The clerk told police he had been attacked by three men wearing all-black clothing, black masks and gloves.  The suspects hit him several times with the bats.  After a struggle the men ran off and police were unable to find them.

The attackers made no attempt to steal anything from the store.
