Longmont police identified and are seeking suspect connected in fatal assault early this week

Longmont police are looking for information the public might have on the suspect.

A 36-year-old man is the focus of the investigation of a bicycle rider who died following a Nov. 5 incident on the greenway south of Lowe’s at 355 Ken Pratt Blvd and north of the Longmont Recreation Center.

Longmont police are asking for help in finding Edward Herbert Hoid. Police on Saturday released photos of Hoid.

The victim, 71-year-old Randall Schubert, died as a result of the incident. Police believe Schubert either fell from his bike and was robbed or was knocked from his bike and robbed, Deputy Police Chief Jeff Satur said.

As a result of the investigation and tips from the public, police are seeking Hoid, according to a Longmont Police press release.

Hoid currently has a felony warrant for parole violation with nationwide extradition, the press release states. Hoid should be considered dangerous and should not be approached, the press release states.

Hoid, who has previously lived in Lyons, may have fled the state, according to the press release. Longmont police are working with other law enforcement agencies to locate him.

Hoid is described as white male, 6-feet-inches tall, 180 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes.

“At this point, Mr. Hoid is wanted for the parole violation and has not been charged in the death of Mr. Schubert, and should be presumed innocent,” according to the press release.

“This is still a very active and serious investigation, and we have made significant progress,” the press release states.

Anyone who knows the whereabouts of Hoid and has pertinent information is asked to immediately call the Longmont Emergency Communications Center at 303-651-8501. If you witnessed the incident or have follow up information about the crime, please call Det. Jon High at 303-651-8584.
