ST. CLOUD, Minn.  (KNSI)  More details are emerging about an assault in a St. Cloud alley last week that left a 20 year-old man dead.

Colton Gleason of Greenfield was walking in an alley in the 600-block between Eighth and Ninth Avenues South last Thursday night when a vehicle drove into the alley. Police now say several people exited the vehicle, including one woman and several men--all in their late teens or early twenties.

One of the people punched Gleason, causing him to fall and strike his head. He was taken to St. Cloud Hospital where he died Friday night from head trauma.

Police Chief Blair Anderson says the vehicle involved is a white four-door mid to full-size car.

Anderson says investigators believe this was a random attack, and that the people in the vehicle were coming from--or going to--a party in the area.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to call St. Cloud police at 251-1200, or Crimestoppers at 255-1301.

A $1,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to an arrest and conviction.
