Washoe County Sheriff’s Office Detectives are asking for the public’s assistance to help identify a person of interest in an assault on a juvenile that occurred last week at the Sun Valley Skate Park.

Shortly after 9:00 p.m. on Tuesday, July 1, 2014, Sheriff’s Office Patrol Deputies were notified that a 14-year-old male juvenile may have been the victim of an assault and robbery that had just occurred at the skate park located off 6th Avenue.

Responding Deputies were told of a male adult who had been acting suspiciously at the park that day. Detectives are now trying to locate that individual to determine what, if any, connection he may have to the assault. 

The individual is described as a white male adult in his late twenties with curly blonde hair and a tattoo on his stomach. He may have been accompanied by another man who had two pit bulls.

Detectives believe that the person of interest described above may have been at the skate park for much of the day on July 1 and are interested in hearing from anyone who can provide any information that may help to identify him. Witnesses are asked to call the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office Detective Division at (775) 328-3320 or Secret Witness at (775) 322-4900. 


The Washoe County Sheriff's Office celebrated 150 years of proud service and community partnership in 2011. Sheriff Chuck Allen is the 26th person elected to serve as the Sheriff of Washoe County. His office continues to be the only full service public safety agency operating within northern Nevada and is responsible for operating the consolidated detention facility, regional crime lab, Northern Nevada Regional Intelligence Center, Internet Crimes against Children Task Force, court security, service of civil process and traditional street patrols.
