Two suspects wanted in connection with attack on couple
A husband and wife walking together in downtown Boulder called 9-1-1 after two suspects attacked the husband, allegedly punching him in the face several times. The victim refused medical treatment, but was injured in the attack. The incident took place on Saturday, June 16, around 12:45 a.m. in the area of Broadway and Spruce Streets.
The victim told police that he and his wife were walking through the parking garage at 2028 11th St. when four males in an SUV approached them and made lewd comments toward his wife. The husband told the men in the SUV that he didn’t appreciate the remarks, and the couple continued walking through the garage and out to the street.
While walking northbound on Broadway, two of the unknown males came up behind the couple and began punching the husband after calling him an obscenity. The wife was not hurt during the attack. She tried to help her husband but was pushed away because he was worried about her safety. The victim says he did not hit the suspects.
The two suspects ran away when the victim told them he was calling police. Officers canvassed the area but weren’t able to locate the men.
It’s believed the two men involved in the attack came from the SUV the couple first encountered in the parking garage. They think the vehicle is possibly a blue Jeep Liberty. The victims weren’t able to provide a license plate number. They did provide descriptions of the two suspects, and composite sketches are below. (The suspects are wearing ball caps in the sketches. A photo of a similar-style ball cap is also included).
Both suspects are white males. One suspect is 6’4” tall, weighs about 260 pounds and has short brown hair. He wore an oversized yellow shirt and blue jeans.
The second suspect is approximately 5’10”, weighs between 195 to 210 pounds, and has brown hair. He wore baggy blue jeans and an oversized green T-shirt. Both of the suspects wore all-white baseball-style caps with flat brims.
The case number is 12-8022.
