Man Assaulted On SE Side


A frightening confrontation led to an assault and attempted mugging Monday morning.

The victim tells police he was walking down East Platte in Colorado Springs around 1 a.m. when a car pulled up beside him. The people inside asked the victim for money; when the victim refused, three men got out of the car, shoved him against a wall and hit him in the face.

Police say the suspect then checked the victim's pockets, but ended up not taking anything.

The suspect descriptions provided by police are as followed: white man, 5-foot-5, tall with a heavy build, medium-length brown hair, wearing a white tank top and blue jean shorts; black man, 5-foot-6 with a medium build, hair short and cropped, wearing a white tank top and blue jean shorts; black man, 6 feet tall, thin build, short hair styled as an afro, wearing a black sweatshirt and black baggie pants.

The men were driving in a black, later model Chevy Suburban.

Anyone with any information about this incident are asked to contact police, or call Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP.

    I hate this kind of crime. It is very hard to catch these idiots, they never get caught. They in turn will commit a crime again because they got away with this one, and so on and so on.

    @Noteworthy, if it weren't for those "thugs" you wouldn't be able to be here saying that. My husband is in the military, he is black and he is NOT a thug. He is very well educated, has a highschool diploma and an associates in Criminal Justice. He also is the youngest man in his Unit to be a SPC, so please keep your idiot comments to yourself. NOBODY knows the facts of any of these crimes except the person who has committed them and GOD himself. So let them judge, keep your rudeness at home.

    Black people are always throwin their race around. You all seem to be the only ones that have a problem with your own skin color! GET OVER and accept who you are and your life will be so much easier. Ignore the morons out there, by responding to their pathetic comments you are only proving them correct. Those of you that are sayin, "look, it's a white guy, it's not just us" are no better than the white people saying "Oh look, another black guy, shocker!" All races are criminals, some are just luckier not to get caught. Stop feeling sorry for yourselves, it's getting really old and pathetic already!

    @Me... Most are coming from Ft. Carson. The Army has allowed way too many thugs to join the ranks.
