Video file

On Tuesday, December 31, 2019 (New Year’s Eve) at approximately 7:15 PM, a family of five were walking eastbound on the 1200 block of Bay Street. Around the same time, two males exited a vehicle (possibly a rideshare vehicle) on Gough Street and were walking eastbound on Bay Street approximately fifty feet behind the family. As the two groups were casually walking, one of the males put down a pizza box and a bag ran up behind the family and shoved one of the juvenile males into a brick wall. The suspect then ran away westbound on Bay Street. The father of the juvenile began chasing the suspect on Bay Street then southbound on Gough Street. He eventually lost sight of the suspect. The unprovoked attack physically injured and emotionally traumatized the juvenile victim. Medics treated the juvenile at the scene for his injuries.

The suspect is described as a white male, between the ages of 25-35 years old, 6 feet tall, medium build, brown hair, and bushy beard. He was last seen wearing a flannel shirt and jeans. The suspect was walking with another male who picked up the suspect’s pizza box and bag and walked away in the same direction the suspect fled. This male is considered a witness and is described as a bald, white adult male, last seen wearing a trench coat.
