A man used a hammer to leave a path of destruction at a Target store in Winona. Police said the 39-year-old man smashed big-screen televisions and destroyed other electronics Saturday evening before taking a swing at an officer.

The Winona Daily News reported customers ran from the store as the man swung his hammer. One witness said the man had a "glazed look" in his eyes and was "walking like Frankenstein."

Officers chased the man through the store and used a Taser gun to subdue him. He was taken to Winona Health for a behavioral evaluation.
