Aaron Rafael Ingram, 49, has turned himself in to Huntington Police. He is the suspect in the robbery and attempted murder at G.D. Ritzy's , 1335 Hal Greer Blvd., early Saturday morning of owner Sid Torlone.

Based on video surveillance , the suspect held Torlone at knife point to get him to open a floor safe, then savagely beat him four times in the head with a metal object. He lay severely bleeding for 30-40 minutes until a delivery person discovered him. 

Magistrate Johnny McCallister arraigned the suspect and set a $500,000 cash only bond, according to the Herald Dispatch.

No update on Torlone's condition, which was critical following surgery, has been made available to the media. 

Interim Police Chief Hank Dial told the newspaper that officers worked all weekend to locate the suspect and convince him to turn himself over to authorities.
