CU Police release sketch of Boulder underpass assault suspect
BOULDER, Colo. — University of Colorado Boulder Police released a sketch of one of the suspects they say assaulted a CU student on a pedestrian underpass early Friday morning.
Witnesses told officers two male suspects approached a group of students at the Broadway and Euclid pedestrian underpass on the west side of campus and started making derogatory statements to one of the individuals at about 1:19 a.m.
A male CU student reportedly overheard the comment and intervened, punching one of the suspects, according to police.
The two suspects then proceeded to punch and kick the male student before taking off to the east.
The male student was taken to a local hospital for serious bodily injuries, including fractures and broken bones to his face.
Police are looking for the suspects, who witnesses told police they believe are freshman at CU.
The first suspect is described as a white male who is college-aged, is about 5-foot-10 and has a skinny build. The suspect has long brown hair and was last seen wearing a gray shirt, shorts and black socks.
The second suspect is described as a white college-aged male who is about 5-foot-8, with blond hair in a buzz cut. He was last seen wearing a black shirt and jeans.
The sketch released is that of the second suspect described. Multiple witnesses told police that he left the scene of the assault with a bloody nose.
Anyone who has information about this crime, or who believes they may know the identity of those involved, should contact CU Police at (303) 492-6666.
