Suspects brutally assault, rob victim in North Austin: police

The Austin Police Department is looking for a man they say participated in a brutal assault and robbery in North Austin earlier this month.

APD says the robbery happened just before 2 p.m. April 8 in an alleyway in the 900 block of Rutland Drive.

The two suspects brutally assaulted the victim, punching and stomping on their head, then took their belongings and ran north.

One of the suspects has already been identified and arrested, but detectives are asking for the public's help in identifying the second suspect.
