Police still want to find Rudy’s attacker

Sergeant Tom Walsh with La Crosse’s Crime-Stoppers program says 21-year-old Gerald Pemberton is still high on their wanted list.    

Security video from Rudy’s helped police identify Pemberton as the suspect who punched restaurant employee Jim Davenport in the face last September. 

An arrest warrant was issued for Pemberton in early October, on charges of battery and disorderly conduct.
