PLEASANTON (KCBS) – Investigators have identified a person of interest among the several teenagers who witnessed a brutal assault that left a Pleasanton man in a coma, police said Wednesday.
Three teens from Pleasanton and an 18-year-old from outside the area were present when 51-year-old David Lamont was assaulted outside his home on Middleton Place early Saturday morning, said Sgt. Maria Munayer.
“The adult from out of the area who is not local to Pleasanton, and is not currently in Pleasanton is the one person that we have identified as the person of interest in the assault,” she said.
“We have no reason to believe that there were any additional people who were present or involved in the incident. The Pleasanton teens are only considered witnesses.”
The name of the person of interest has not been released.
Munayer said an immediate arrest in the case would be unlikely, since investigators would not be able to speak with the victim until he recovers.
“Although Mr. Lamont remains in critical condition, we are still hopeful that he will be able to speak with us in the future and provide his recollection of the incident,” she said.
