BOISE — Boise Police Department investigators are asking for a public’s help in locating a man they say could be a possible witness to a knife attack.

It happened on February 23rd near the intersection of Fairview Avenue and Five Mile Road in west Boise. “Detectives have a possible suspect identified, but would like to speak with a potential witness in order to further their investigation,” according to a Boise Police news release.

About 2:15 a.m. that day, officers were dispatched to the area on a battery report.

“A male adult victim had been attacked with a knife by an unknown male suspect. The victim’s injuries were not life threatening. Following (their) investigation, officers were able to identify a possible suspect and a possible witness,” the release stated. “It’s believed the witness does not know either the victim or the suspect.”

Police released surveillance video stills of the witness.

Anyone with information about this investigation -- or the witness -- is encouraged to call Crime Stoppers at 208-343-COPS (2677),, or leave a tip using the “P3 Tips” app for your mobile device. Tips can remain anonymous.
