Oak, NE~~Nebraska State Patrol Troop C-Grand Island is asking for your help in finding two suspects believed to be involved with the assault of a Davenport man. NSP investigators received a request for assistance from the Nuckoll’s County Sheriff’s Office after 62-year-old Steven Reinke was assaulted by two males at a home under construction two miles north of Oak.
The two males apparently attacked Reinke with a wooden baseball bat around 12:30pm on Tuesday. After the attack Reinke walked to a neighbor’s house, let himself in when no one answered, and was discovered around 4:00pm on the kitchen floor.
Reinke suffered a skull fracture, broken arm, and broken leg. He was eventually flown by medical helicopter to Bryan LGH-West in Lincoln.
Investigators are looking for two suspects, both identified as white males. One suspect is said to be approximately 55-years of age, 5’8’’ tall, 165 lbs. with a sandy blonde or light gray beard and mustache, and short sandy blonde or light gray hair. He was wearing a green camouflage shirt, desert camouflage pants, boots and a brown military style hat. The second suspect is described as a white male, in his 40’s, approximately 5’8’’ tall, 190 lbs. with a stocky build. He was wearing a black ski mask, dark glasses, a red shirt under a black zip-up sweatshirt, black sweat pants and black or gray hiking boots.
The suspects were believed to have left the home in a southerly direction, driving an older boxy 1996 style green Dodge Dakota pickup, with a matching green topper and a possible red pinstripe on both the pickup and the topper.
Anyone with information that could aid in the investigation of this crime is asked to call the Nebraska State Patrol Troop C Headquarters in Grand Island at (308) 385-6000.
