Police release composite in life-threatening assault
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.”
