A 71-year-old man who either fell off or was knocked from his bicycle and robbed on Nov. 5 died early Monday.

The Boulder County coroner Tuesday identified the man as Randall Schubert of Longmont. The cause and manner of death are pending futher investigation, the coroner stated in a press release.

Police are seeking witnesses to the incident that occurred about 5 p.m. on the greenway south of Lowe’s, 355 Ken Pratt Blvd., and north of the Longmont Recreation Center, Deputy Police Chief Jeff Satur said.

Police via Facebook released photos of persons of interest taken from nearby store surveillance cameras. Police also have video of a suspect using the victim’s credit card and getting rid of it, Satur said.

One of the individuals was last seen riding a green Bridgestone bike taken from the victim, according to the Facebook post.

Witness statements are critical to get a clearer idea of what happened and to determine the severity of the charges facing the alleged assailants, Satur said.

“This could be a bike crash and he is injured and people, instead of helping him, steal his stuff,” he said.    

“Or it could be straight-on assault and that is the worst-case scenario. If that is the case, someone in our community died from a random assault. And that is not common in our community.”

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Detective Jon High at 303-651-8485 or the Longmont Emergency Communication Center, 303-651-8501 and reference report No. 20-8649.
