Westminster Police Search For Suspect In Baseball Bat Attack
WESTMINSTER, Colo. (CBS4)– Police in Westminster are searching for a man they believe attacked a teenage girl with a baseball bat last week.
Police have arrested two people in connection with the Nov. 23 attack that happened at about 1 a.m. near the intersection of 92nd and Lowell.
Police are looking for Robert John Crespin. He is wanted on several charges including kidnapping, vehicular eluding, third degree assault, violation of protection order and violation of bond conditions. Police may also charge Crespin, 18, with additional traffic violations.
Investigators said one of the suspects had a relationship with the teen girl but did not elaborate on whether that was Crespin.
Crespin has been described as 5-foot-3 to 5-foot-5, 110-130 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.
Anyone with information about Crespin’s whereabouts is asked to call the Westminster Police Department at 303-658-4360.
Daniel Meadors told CBS4 he was with the girl when she was attacked. He said the suspects first drove up inside a cream colored van near the intersection and started breaking windows of nearby buildings.
Meadors says they tried to abduct her and also scared him.
“He turns around and the passenger swings a bat out the van at me and says ‘I’m going to kill you,’ ” Meadors said.
“They tried taking her. They grabbed her and he threw her in the van,” he said.
She was found in an alley beaten and bloody. Meadors carried her home and called 911.
“She had been attacked. Her face all bleeding. It was terrible. There was so much blood everywhere.”
The suspects lead police on an extended chase that ended in Aurora at 13th and Peoria Street.
When the van stopped the suspects tried to run but two suspects were arrested immediately. An adult male was held on charges related to the felony menacing and a juvenile male was released to his parent.
