May 15, 2013 

Boise police have released more photos of a pickup truck that intentionally hit a woman in the Boise Towne Square Mall parking lot Wednesday night.

Law enforcement is still looking for the driver, described in a Boise Police Department press release asa stocky white male, bald or with very short hair and blue eyes. He was wearing a tank top and shorts at the time of the attack, and appeared in his late 30's, police said.

The man allegedly struck and a woman with his truck, a teal GMC or Chevrolet pickup, Wednesday at around 8:45 Wednesday night. The woman was found laying in the parking lot with a serious leg injury, police said. She was taken to a local hospital.

The suspect also assaulted another woman earlier in the evening as she was getting into her car, police said.

"This suspect needs to be found," said Boise Police Deputy Chief William Bones. "These attacks appear unprovoked, the victims appear innocent, and we are asking the public's help to find this suspect as soon as possible before he's a threat to anyone else."

Witnesses said the truck appeared to swerve to hit the woman intentionally before heading eastbound through the parking lot.

The truck is described in a BPD press release as a teal colored possibly 90's model GMC or Chevrolet pick-up truck with a sticker in the lower right rear window and Idaho license plates. It may have a slight lift, and has silver base trim, police said. The truck has a solid Tonneau-type bed cover painted the same teal color as the truck.

Anyone with information about the truck or suspect is urged to call non-emergency dispatch at 377-6790.

Police advised residents to use caution when getting into their vehicles. Drivers should park in secure areas, be alert to the people and vehicles around them, and always have keys ready when approaching the vehicle, police said.
