Arnold Police are trying to find a 33-year-old House Springs man after he allegedly assaulted a 32-year-old St. Louis man outside the Circle K gas station, 504 Jeffco Blvd., in Arnold. The St. Louis man had walked to the gas station after an argument with his girlfriend. The cause of the argument was not reported, according to Arnold Police.
