DENVER -- Police were looking for a homeless man who they believe is very dangerous Thursday morning. He's accused in a violent attack that happened at dinner time Wednesday.

A valet for Prime Steak House was parking cars in downtown Denver when he was attacked by a man who "came out of nowhere and took a swipe at him with a knife," a witness told FOX31 Denver.

"He had been running (a car) down to 16th street and on the way back he got confronted by somebody either asking for the keys or the money bag," said Jake Foerster, a valet who works with the victim. "I was running cars when I saw the ambulance and I ran over to see what happened, but I was too late."

The attacker ran off while the victim was down on the ground. The valet received a large cut on his back that required about 100 stitches to close, but he's expected to be okay.

Denver Police released the following suspect description:

  • White male, early 40s
  • 5'5", 150-160 lbs
  • Carrying towels
  • Brown Jacket, blue jeans
  • Possibly homeless
