As a woman recovers from a vicious attack late last month, police continue to search for one of the alleged assailants.

The victim was savagely beaten and shot in the head, then left to die in the middle of a Colorado Springs intersection. Sources tell 11 News she was also sexually assaulted. On the morning of Dec. 28, a passerby found the woman sprawled in the roadway at 7th Street and Bijou and called police.

Authorities told 11 News at the time that the woman was in such bad shape that she was struggling to remember who or where she was. She has recovered enough to supply police with a description of the two men who allegedly tried to kill her.

One of the suspects, identified as Hamilton Sullivan, was arrested on Jan. 3 and charged with first-degree kidnapping and attempted first-degree murder. A second suspect, identified as Jorge Hernandez, remains on the loose.

A friend of the victim told 11 News that the suspects made passes at her friend while at a bar on the night of Dec. 27. She didn't think much of it, and the two parted ways without incident.

"I told her my goodbye, my other friend told her 'bye,' and we separated and went our different ways...the next morning that's when we heard about everything."

Hernandez is considered armed and dangerous. If you have information on his whereabouts, you are asked to contact CSPD immediately, or call Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP.
