Crime of the Week: Police Seek Tips In Assault Case
EL PASO — According to a police report released Friday morning, a man asked to borrow a cell phone and when he was denied, he allegedly beat and kicked the victim viciously and stole the phone. This made Crime Stoppers' “Crime of the Week.”
The incident happened just before midnight Thursday, and the suspect fled the scene. It is not known if the suspect fled in a vehicle or on foot. Because this location is in a heavily traveled part of Alameda near Ysleta High School, investigators believe that someone may have seen the incident happen and possibly can identify the assailant, his vehicle, or where he might have fled.
If you have any information at all about this case, please call Crime Stoppers at 566-TIPS (566-8477) or on-line at www.crimestoppersofelpaso.org. You can remain anonymous and, if your tip leads to an arrest, you can qualify for a cash reward.
