MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Minneapolis Downtown Council, in collaboration with CrimeStoppers, said Tuesday it’s offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in connection with the assault of a St. Patrick’s Day Parade participant.

Authorities say the incident took place near the intersection of 5th Street South and Marquette Avenue at about 8:15 p.m. last Thursday. It was during the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in downtown Minneapolis.

Tom Hoch, the chair of the Minneapolis Downtown Council Board, said the victim was at the parade with his family and was sucker-punched without provocation.

Authorities are offering the reward in the hopes that anyone with information about the incident or the suspect will come forward. Anyone with information should call CrimeStoppers at 1 (800) 222-8477.
