Asked in Criminal Law for Georgia

Q: What crime is committed when a person lays in wait and attacks you from behind?

The attacker attacked my son at McDonald’s from behind. He had been waiting on my son to come out the door. He had a rock in his hand. My son was hit so hard he has closed head trauma. Bleeding on brain. Bruised brain. As soon as the law was called the man ran jumped in his wives car on passenger side and fled the scene. What all can he be charged with? Disturbing the peace? Leaving the scene? Battery?
