A man in the Montrose area has been brutally beaten, and the assailant is still at large.
The 46-year-old man said he left a bar adjacent to Fairview shortly after two o’clock in the morning on Sunday, June 5, and was walking to his car when he was attacked by a man with a bat. The attack was witnessed by several people.
The assailant is described as a 25- to 28-year-old black male with a medium-build and about five feet, ten inches. He was wearing blue jeans and a tie-dyed shirt.
The attack, which occurred on Sunday night near the corner of Crocker St. and Fargo St., left the man with two broken arms, numerous bruises, and a head wound which required 14 staples to close. A Houston Police Department spokeswoman said the case has not yet been assigned to an officer.
Unofficial reports at the time of this writing are that at least one other similar attack has occurred in the same area.
Anyone with information about the attack, especially witnesses, are urged to call CrimeStoppers at 713/222-TIPS (8477).
