The University of Colorado Boulder Police Department is investigating an aggravated assault/possible robbery (case number 14-1817), which reportedly occurred somewhere between the 900 block of Grandview Avenue and Baker Hall on Oct. 4, 2014 between 4:45 a.m. and 5:30 a.m.

The male victim in this case reported that he believes he was assaulted while walking home from a private residence to his residence hall.  When the victim reported the incident the following day, he stated that he was missing items he had with him earlier in the night.

The victim sustained significant injuries including a concussion, and has limited recollection of the events that led to his assault. Initial information indicates that the victim may have walked eastbound on Grandview Avenue to Broadway, south on Broadway to the UMC underpass to campus, then east from the Visual Arts Plaza area (near the UMC Bike Station) to 18th Street and across to Baker Hall.

Due to the severity of the injuries sustained by the victim and a lack of information regarding the nature of the assault, investigators from the University of Colorado Boulder Police Department are asking the public to contact us immediately if they recall seeing an assault in progress or a male with facial injuries walking towards the CU campus between the hours of 4:45 a.m. and 5:30 a.m. on Oct. 4, 2014.

Anyone with information about this crime should contact CU Police at 303-492-6666. Those who have information but wish to remain anonymous may submit a tip via the Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers website at http://www.crimeshurt.com.
