On 05/13/2019, Officers were dispatched to the area of the City of Boulder Library, at 1001 Arapahoe Avenue, in reference to an assault which had just occurred.  Upon arriving on scene, officers contact the victim who explained that he had exited the library and began walking along the creek path.  An unknown male asked the victim, what time is it, and the victim removed his phone from his pocket to check the time and told the suspect the time.

The suspect then punched the suspect in the face, causing him pain, and then began walking along the creek path.  A witness saw the altercation and took a photograph of the suspect as he walked away. The below photograph was submitted to the Boulder Police Department by the witness who observed the incident.  If you have information about the male suspect or about this incident, please contact Officer Marples at 303-441-3345.
