WASHINGTON CITY — Officers from the Washington City Police department have arrested one suspect in an assault that left a man seriously injured in the shared parking lot of El Pollo Loco and Jack in the Box Thursday afternoon.
Around 12:20 p.m., an altercation erupted in the parking lot, according to witnesses. One man was taken to the hospital with serious injuries, while the other two men involved fled the scene. The police department asked for the communities help in locating the suspects and were able to find and arrest one suspect.
Saturday evening, officers arrested Cody Sandberg, 34, of Washington City based on information received from the public, according to a statement from Washington County Police Public Information Officer Ed Kantor.
Sandberg was located and arrested without incident and booked into Washington County’s Purgatory Correctional Facility on one count of simple assault, a Class-A Misdemeanor. According to booking information, Sandberg’s bail stands at $1,012.
The Washington City Police Department would like to thank the media outlets that promptly reported this incident as well as the citizens in the community that came forward with information. Without the community partnership we enjoy in Washington County, this case may not have been resolved as quickly as it was.
Persons arrested or charged are presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law or as otherwise decided by a trier-of-fact.
