“On January 9, 2021 at about 1:18 am our Communications Center received a 9-1-1 call from a male who said he was walking in the area of Scott Street and Canal Street when he was assaulted and robbed of one of his credit cards. He described the suspect as a white male adult, with black hair, wearing light colored clothing.
Officers responded to the area and contacted the male caller, who sustained injuries to his jaw and mouth. While speaking to the man, officers noted he had difficulty remembering what happened and stated he had been drinking earlier that night on Sutter Street. In the days following the assault the victim reported that he had been the victim of a racially motivated assault by several men.
Due to the lack of information provided by the man, officers were left to piece together his whereabouts to locate surveillance, potential witnesses, and any additional evidence. Over the weeks that followed, detectives worked hard to track down surveillance, and witnesses. With the help of local businesses and community members, they were successful.
Surveillance footage was reviewed, and it was determined the man sustained his injuries from a fall. No assault, or racially motivated attack took place, and there are no suspects that pose a threat to the community. The man involved was contacted, informed, and shown the surveillance footage that was located by detectives.”
