Police looking for witness with video of St. Cloud assault
ST. CLOUD, Minn. (FOX 9) - Police are investigating after a man was reportedly assaulted by two males Sunday morning in St. Cloud, Minnesota. Officials say a witness may have caught some of it on video, which could help them identify the suspects.
According to police, at about 7:43 a.m., officers responded to a reported assault in progress at University Drive South and 8th Avenue South in St. Cloud. Police learned a 32-year-old man had been assaulted by two males near the east side of NY Gyro. The suspects may have used a wooden shovel handle in the assault.
Officials believe the incident was "likely a continuation of a reported fight" in the 700 block of 14th Street South earlier in the morning. According to police, this was not a random act, and the men knew each other.
Witnesses told police that a citizen stopped and apparently recorded video of the assault. Officers are asking this person to contact police so they can identify the suspects involved.
