A $1,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of an assault that took place in Grand Teton National Park.
Early Thursday morning, rangers responded to a report of a loud party at an employee residential area of Jackson Lake Lodge. When the rangers arrived, they discovered that a Grand Teton Lodge Company security guard had been assaulted by a person wielding a blunt object.
Rangers provided emergency medical care to the security guard and transported him to St. John’s Medical Center in Jackson, Wyo., where he was subsequently treated for significant injuries, according to a news release Friday.
Although the rangers have identified several people involved in the disturbance, no witnesses came forward with information about the assault itself.
National Park Service rangers and special agents are conducting an investigation into the details of the incident and are seeking information about the person or people responsible.
Anyone with information about the incident should call Crimestoppers, a local nonprofit group that helps law enforcement and is offering the reward, at (307) 733-5148, or U.S. Park Ranger Jason Montoya at (307) 739-3503. Callers can remain anonymous.
