The suspect was described as being a white male, 18 to 26 years old, about 5’10” tall and weighing between 120 and 130 pounds. He was wearing a white baseball hat, blue jeans, a black sweatshirt and white shoes.

Erickson said the victim in the case, whose identity was not released, sustained minor injuries from the assault.
