Both men suffered non-life threatening injuries. The attack happened near the School of Mines campus. Campus police sent out an alert to nearby residents warning them of the attack.

The suspect is described as a white male with blue eyes, 25-40 years old, between 5-foot-8 and 5-foot-10, 140-160 pounds. He was wearing dark clothing, a dark-colored mask and used a blunt object in his attack.

Investigators believe the attack could be linked to an attack in January. That first incident happened in the 1500 block of Ford Street, near where Wednesday’s assault happened. In that attack, two transients were targeted and one man was struck in the back of the head with a blunt object and the suspect tried to tase them with a stun gun.

In both cases, the attacker yelled, “Get out of my city!”

Police believe there may be other attacks not reported to police.

Golden police are asking for the public’s help. Anyone with information on either case, or another attack matching the description of the suspect, to call Golden Police Sgt. Marcus Williams at 303-384-8116 or mwilliams@cityofgolden.net.

    This is going to happen more and more as taxpayers reach the end of their patience with bums and junkies.

  2. Kenneth L. Baiko says:

    The number of homeless in the city will reach a tipping point. Then all of the feel-good sanctimonious libs who are inconvenienced by it all, will finally say enough is enough. They will then finally declare their city as being a Non-homeless Sanctuary City.

  3. Gabriel McKing says:

    If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered

    The attacker is performing a Public Service by cleaning up the city

    I remember a time when there were paragraphs this accurate and succinct about suspects of all races and creeds.

  6. Bernard Wilrise says:

    I was born in Denver and have been homeless many times here over the years, it’s impossible to tell where they’re from. It’s time we start being more honest and start blaming Democrats for voting in millions of low wage workers from the third world.

  7. What did/would Jesus do? H e was homeless and that made A-L-O-T of very important humans so angry – – his public death, was “arranged”.

    1. Christ was not crucified because he was homeless. It was because he was calling liberal progressives to repentance.

  8. Michael P Coleman says:

    Just like any other Democrat liberal socialist city !

    1. Dave Hardesty says:

      liberals are really compassionate people. Just ask them. They are all for breaking laws by providing sanctuary to illegal aliens while they let their own citizens of this nation go homeless, sick and hungry in the streets. Not just in Colorado but California, Oregon and Washington states as well. Can’t comment on other liberal states because I have not been in them recently but I suspect it’s the same in those liberal states as well.
