LOVELAND, Colo. — Police are looking for two people in relation to an investigation of an assault and car theft on Saturday, the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office said.

Deputies responded to a report of an assault in a residence in the 400 block of East 57th Street. A 39-year-old man suffered serious injuries and was transported to a hospital with significant but nonlife-threatening injuries.

Deputies identified the suspect as Jose Luis Ciau-tun, 43, a Hispanic male who is 5-foot-7 and 150 pounds. Ciau-tun is wanted for first-degree assault and aggravated motor vehicle theft.

Ciau-tun might be accompanied by a Megan Simmons, 31, who has brown hair and blue eyes. The sheriff’s office said it wants to speak to Simmons to determine what involvement, if any, she might have had in the assault.

Ciau-tun was believed to be driving a stolen maroon 1998 GMC Sonoma pickup truck, which was found unoccupied on Sunday.

The sheriff’s office is still seeking the whereabouts of Ciau-tun and Simmons.

Anyone with information is asked to call investigator Chris Wenrick at 970-498-5165, the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office at 970-416-1985 or Crime Stoppers at 970-221-6868.
