Several hundred incoming CU-Boulder students tried their hand helping others during “Day of Service” on Saturday, Aug. 24. The day was an opportunity for first-year students to get out into their new community and experience the needs and culture beyond the borders of the CU campus, according to Jen Ross, director of the Volunteer Resource Center at CU-Boulder, which spearheads the service event.
A composite sketch of one of the suspects, identified as Suspect #2 below, is shown here. Multiple witnesses confirmed that Suspect #2 left the scene with a bloody nose.

Anyone who has information about this crime, or who believes they may know the identity of those involved, should contact CU Police at 303-492-6666.
