Roseville Police Department investigators are still asking the public to help identify two men involved in a recent attack on a 90-year-old driver.

Two witnesses to the attack described the suspects’ vehicle as an older brown or tan pickup, with a body style similar to the truck depicted in the attached images. The hood of the truck was a different color than the body of the truck. (The attached images are only pictures of a similar truck–they are not images of the actual suspect vehicle.)

At approximately 1:15  p.m. on Monday, May 28, a 90-year-old North Highlands man drove his green 1996 Ford Explorer westbound on Blue Oaks Boulevard, then turned south onto Fiddyment Road. As he turned left, he was sideswiped, it appeared deliberately, by a tan or brown pickup. The two vehicles stopped, and both occupants of the pickup got out. The pickup driver reached through victim’s open driver’s side window, punched the victim in the chest, and kicked the side of the victim’s Ford Explorer, causing large dents. A witness saw the incident, stopped and yelled at the two men. The two men got back into their pickup and drove away southbound on Fiddyment Road.

The victim suffered bruising and pain. He was transported by ambulance to Sutter Roseville Medical Center, where he was treated and released.

The pickup driver was described as a white male in his 20s, approximately 5’9″ tall, 175 pounds, with black hair, wearing a white tank top.

Anyone who may have witnessed this incident, or who has any information about this incident is asked to call the Roseville Police Department Investigation Unit at (916)774-5070, or Roseville Crime Stoppers at (916)783-7867.
