Police looking for suspect in Rochester assault

Posted:

ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- Rochester police are asking for your help to track down a suspect who allegedly punched a teenager in the face twice a week ago.

According to police, an 18-year-old man was walking from John Marshall High School to a nearby church in the area of Elton Hills Drive and 22nd Street northwest on February 28th at around 3:30 p.m.

A car pulled up beside him with only the driver inside. The driver summoned the teen and when he approached, the driver hit him.

The teen then struck the car as the man drove away. That's when the driver stopped again, got out of the car, and punched the teen in the face again.

Police say the suspect may have punched the man with an object. The teen suffered severe facial injuries that require surgery to repair.

The suspect is described as a white male, in his 30s, with short, dark, curly hair, and was driving a dark-colored, 4-door sedan.

Police say they believe it's possible the suspect lives in the area of Elton Hills Dr. and 22nd St. or frequents the area.

If you have any information that could help police, you're asked to call Rochester police Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
