Night in Country assault suspect interviewed

Gardnerville, Nev. — A suspect has been interviewed in the beating of a 21-year-old Carson Valley man at Night in the Country in Yerington, and the case has been forwarded to the Lyon County District Attorney’s Office.

In his weekly report on Facebook, Lyon County Sheriff Al McNeil said Sunday a suspect in the July 24 assault was identified thanks to tips from residents.

Lyon County issued a Secret Witness bulletin last week.

The victim was attacked at about 11 p.m. as he was exiting the concert when he came upon a fight involving two women near the exit. When he tried to stop the fight, he was hit from behind by someone.

According to the sheriff’s office, the man suffered serious injuries and was taken to Renown Regional Medical Center where he was in the intensive care unit until Thursday, when he returned home, where he is recuperating.
