To the CU Boulder Community:
On Saturday, Sept. 5, 2020, at approximately 11:20 p.m., the CU Boulder Police Department (“CUPD”) was notified of a possible attempted aggravated assault.
Six high school-aged males were hanging out in parking lot 306 on the CU Boulder campus. The males were in two different large pickup trucks. Two college-aged people, a male and a female, were walking through the parking lot when they started to verbally engage the high school students. The verbal altercation escalated and the college-aged male displayed a knife with a blade that was approximately 3 inches long. The male threatened the entire group and held one of the high school students up against one of the trucks. A small crowd started to gather and the two college-aged people left, heading south on Broadway and then east on Baseline Road. The high school-aged males followed the two, but lost sight of them near 27th Way and Baseline Road.
The suspect is described as:
- Light-skinned, black male, 18- to 22-years-old
- Medium to long black hair
- Wearing a black and white plaid, flannel shirt, black shorts and white shoes
- Thin build, about 5 feet 10 inches tall
