Police seek public’s help in assault case

Local News

Winnebago police are seeking the public’s help in solving an assault involving juveniles that may have been video-taped.

Police Chief Eric Olson says Blue Earth Area High School resource officer DJ Bullerman contacted his department on Nov. 9 about the assault that may have occurred in Winnebago.

In a news release, Olson says an investigation is being conducted and no other information is being released at this time.

“We have received information that a video may be out there,” Olson says in the news release. “We encourage anyone that may have this video to come forward.”

Attempts to contact Olson to ask when and where the assault occurred and if anyone was seriously injured were not successful.

Olson says officers in his department are working hard at gathering facts about the case.

“We would like to assure the Winnebago community and parents of Blue Earth Area School District that it is our number one priority to solve this case,” he says.

Persons having any information should contact the police department by calling (507) 893-3218.
