LAKEWOOD – After re-interviewing the witnesses, giving them a day to get over the shock of what happened, the description of the suspect vehicle has expanded from the initial description of a minivan. The witnesses still believe the color of the vehicle may be tan or light colored, but think it might have been a SUV type vehicle or larger sedan. The vehicle may have running boards and was being driven by a younger white male. It is still believed that there were other passengers in the vehicle.
LPD is asking the public to notify us of ANY vehicle that they have seen that has recent front end or undercarriage damage or is being hidden/not driven since Sunday morning.
LPD is urging the driver to come forward and talk with detectives about what happened. LPD is also warning the other passengers in the suspect vehicle that if they do not come forward with what they know, consideration will be given to arresting them for their involvement.
Detectives are reviewing surveillance video from the area of the incident and hope to identify a suspect vehicle from the footage.
If anyone in the public knows anything about this case, they are urged to call the Lakewood Police Department at 253-830-5000 or the Lakewood Tip Line at 253-830-5064. Tips can also be submitted through the Lakewood Police website or through Crimestoppers at 253-591-5959.
