(LUBBOCK, TX) – Investigators with the Lubbock Police Department Person Crimes Unit are asking for the public’s help in identifying and locating a suspect who is wanted on charges of assaulting an officer.

On December 29th, 2017, an officer was patrolling the 2800 block of Cornell around 1:30 a.m., when the officer noticed a male walking in the area that matched the description of a suspect in a stalking report the officer had recently taken. 

The officer, who noted the closeness in proximity of the male to the victim’s house in the above case number, stopped the male and began asking questions. The suspect, whom the officer had detained, quickly became agitated and verbally combative toward the officer, before trying to walk away. While the officer was trying to place the suspect in handcuffs, the suspect broke away and assaulted the officer.

The officer then called for additional units to the scene, including K-9. However, officers were unable to locate the suspect.

If anyone has any information regarding this case, including who the suspect is, and where he is located, we ask that they call Crime Line at 741-1000.
