A 100-year-old Longmont man reported to have been assaulted along Main Street last month has died, police say.

Longmont police responded Oct. 25 to the 2200 block of Main Street on a report of the assault. The man was pushed from behind, causing him to fall into a parked vehicle and then hit the ground. He was taken to a hospital the same day. He died today, according to police.

According to police reports, the man was said to be a World War II veteran. Robin Ericson, communications and marketing manager with the Longmont Public Safety Department, was unable to confirm today if this was accurate.

The man told a bystander that he had been pushed from behind and fell into a parked car and then to the ground, according to a press release. The man, who had limited eyesight, said the person who pushed him was wearing pants with a blue checkered pattern on them. A witness described seeing a Black man between 40 and 50 years old, wearing black pants with blue squares, in the general area, the release said.

The cause and manner of the man’s death will be determined by the Boulder County Coroner’s Office. His name will be released by the coroner’s office.

Longmont officers have been investigating this case since the assault occurred. Police have spoken to people at businesses in the area and are asking anyone who may have video of the assault or any witnesses to contact Longmont Police Detective Cody Clark at 303-774-4392 and reference case No. 21-8933.
