Reward Offered for Info on Assault

Licking County Crime Stoppers is offering up to a $1,000 reward for anyone with information leading to an arrest in an assault in Newark's north end that left a man hospitalized for his injuries from the attack. The Newark Police Department reports on the night of May 14, a 59-year-old man was robbed of his money and assaulted by three men in the area of Sherwood Downs and Ditmoor Stroll, as he was walking home from a store on N. 21st St.

The three suspects are all described as white males, in their early twenties, taller than five-foot-nine, and wearing hooded sweatshirts. Two of them had sideburns and goatees.

Anyone with information on this crime is urged to call the Licking County Crime Stoppers at 740-349-6888 or 1-888-488-9058. A special coding system protects the identity of the caller but allows for the reward to be issued at a later time.

Crime Stoppers also takes calls from persons with information about any felony. Information leading to the arrest and indictment of a felony suspect could qualify the caller for a reward as determined by the Crime Stoppers’ Board. Crime Stoppers is a non-profit organization. Reward money comes from private individuals, businesses, and foundations that see Crime Stoppers as an integral tool in the community’s fight against crime. Tax-deductible donations can be sent to: Licking County Crime Stoppers, Inc., P.O. Box 304, Newark, OH 43058-0304.
