AUSTIN (KXAN) — The Austin Police Department is seeking the public’s help in finding a suspect wanted in connection with a north Austin robbery, APD said in a news release.

Shortly before 2 p.m., April 8, two suspects “brutally assaulted” the victim by punching and stomping on the victim’s head in an alleyway in the 900 block of Rutland Drive, police said.

One of the suspects has been arrested, police said. The other is who the police need help to find.

During the attack, both suspects took the victim’s belongings and ran north away from the scene, the release said. Detectives believe this was not a random attack.
