Have you seen this person of interest in a violent assault?

At about 3 a.m. Friday, May 28, in the area of 6200 Main, a 25-year-old man contacted officers. The man was suffering from head injuries and told the officers he and his friend had been robbed and beaten. Nearby in a parking lot, officers located a 21-year-old female. The woman was unconscious and had severe head trauma from an apparent beating. Both victims were transported to an area hospital, where the woman remains in critical condition. The man was treated and later released. Both victims said they were confronted by two males in the parking lot, at which time they were robbed, beaten, and kicked. They said both males were armed, and they used handguns to beat them along with kicking and stomping on both of their heads.

The attached pictures were taken from surveillance video at about 11:40 a.m. May 28 and feature a male possibly involved in the robbery. He's in the red shirt. One picture shows him with a small boy, and another shows the car he was driving. Anyone with information about this person or anyone else involved in the incident should call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS (8477).
