GRANDVILLE, Mich. (WOOD) — Grandville police are asking for the public’s help to learn more about the victim of an assault.

Police say they responded to the 3800 block of Indian Mounds Drive SW near Wilson Avenue SW around 6:15 p.m. on April 23. Police say the victim was likely left at the location after the assault.

Authorities say the man initially identified himself as Pedro Ortiz, but because of medical treatments, they haven’t been able to speak further with him. Police say they used traditional attempts to identify the victim, but weren’t successful. Now they need your help.

They say the victim is a Hispanic man that is about 30 years old. He has black hair and brown eyes and stands about 5-foot-7, weighing about 165 pounds. He was found wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt and a bright blue T-shirt.
