SUBJECT: Police Release Composite in Life-Threatening Assault
Boulder police are asking for the public's help in identifying a suspect in
an assault that occurred at about 12:45 a.m. on Saturday, March 6, on the
southeast corner of 11th and Walnut streets. A 23-year-old male victim was
attacked by an unknown male suspect, who caused life-threatening injuries. A
witness was able to help with a composite sketch of the suspect.
Go to http://www.colorado.edu/police to view the sketch.
The incident happened near a taxi stand. The victim and a friend had left
the Walrus Saloon and were attempting to get a cab when a group of three men
confronted them. The suspect pictured in the composite sketch punched the
victim at least once in the face, causing him to fall to the ground. The
suspect and his friends then ran away, in the direction of University Hill.
The victim was unconscious for several minutes. According to doctors who
treated him, he suffered brain hemorrhaging as well as broken facial bones
and likely would have died if not seen quickly by medical personnel. He
likely will need additional surgery.
The suspect has several distinctive physical features. He has been described
as a 20- to 22-year-old Hispanic or Pacific Islander male with dark red
curly hair. He is 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall and was
characterized as being "chunky" with "no neck" and "a pot belly."
