LAS CRUCES, N.M. - A reward is being offered to those who have information on the people who violently attacked a deputy at the UTEP/NMSU game at Aggie Memorial Stadium last weekend.
The deputy who was not in uniform at the time was chasing a man that allegedly assaulted another person, said a Dona Ana County Sheriff's official.
The attack happened around 6 p.m. Saturday. During the chase, the deputy tripped and fall underneath a canopy area. While he was on the ground officials said the deputy was punched and kicked multiple times by onlookers.
The deputy wasn't able to identify his attackers because of his injuries, so the sheriff's office is offering a reward up to $1,000 in identifying them.
Anyone with information is asked to call Las Cruces Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477. Tips may also be submitted via text to 274637 (CRIMES) with the keyword LCTIPS.
Tipsters will remain anonymous.
