The National Park Service Investigative Services Branch (ISB) is trying to identify a male victim from an August attack.

In a press release, the department said U.S. Lake Mead National Reaction Area park rangers and ISB special agents were asking for help from the public, noting that the information could be helpful with other ongoing investigations.

The man was “violently attacked by a group of people while he was camping with his family near the shore of Lake Mohave’s Nelson landing site.” This is about 30 miles south of Boulder City, Nevada.

According to the ISB, the attack happened on the evening of August 28th.

Nelson’s Landing is not listed on the National Park Service website as one of the campgrounds in Lake Mead National Recreation Area.

The victim is described as a Hispanic male between the ages of 25 and 35 and weighing 200 to 250 pounds.

It wasn’t immediately clear why the department was hoping to identify the victim months after the attack.

The National Park Service told Fox News Digital in an email that park rangers have received a report of the attack from an independent witness and are trying to identify the victim of the crime for possible prosecution.
