SAVANNAH, GA (September 4, 2012) Reaction to a Metro police request for information on an incident in Downtown’s Ellis Square has led Detectives to intensify their search for participants.

 Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Violent Crimes detective released a video Sunday showing the events leading up to an altercation between a white man and three black men in which the former was injured.

 Today they released photographs pulled from the video in an attempt to identify the other participants so they can be interviewed. Of particular interest is the identity of the three black men walking toward the left in the first photograph, and the man in the black shirt walking towards the camera in the bottom of the second photo.

 Andrew Quade of a West 31st Street address was hospitalized after the August 25 incident.

 Videos show Quade talking with his girlfriend, who is black, when a group of black men walk by about 30 feet away, with one apparently making a comment. The video shows Quade in a conversation with the men as he walked towards them across one of the large planters in the square, then approaching the men, returning to take off his watch and then walking towards the men again.

 A second video shows Quade again confronting the group of men in the crowded square, a black man apparently attempting to quell the confrontation, and Quade fighting with at least one participant of the group. Other members of the group then join in.

 Multiple attempts by police to contact Mr. Quade for interview have been unsuccessful.

 Anyone who witnessed the incident or participated is asked to call SCMPD Violent Crimes Detective Alan Sammons at (912) 651-6728 or Crimestoppers at (912) 234-2020.  Tipsters remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.
