A Norman Park teen-ager suffered apparently minor injuries when another man hit him in the face with a chain during a confrontation in a Moultrie parking lot.

Joseph Glass, 19, did not require medical attention at the scene in the 600 block of Veterans Parkway South near Magnolia Lane that is sometimes used as a hangout spot, Moultrie Police Department Inv. Eric Hill said.
