Reward Offered in Brutal Beating of Leeper Native

kaltenbach-1COLUMBUS, Oh. (EYT) – A Leeper native continues to recover following a brutal attack last month in Columbus, Ohio.

Shaun Kaltenbach, a native of Leeper, Pa., had just finished classes at Columbus State University and was on his way home on the evening of Monday, September 14, 2015.

Just after 9:00pm, he was walking down Spring Street, near Talmadge Street, when he noticed three unknown males walking ahead of him.

Shortly after crossing the street, Shaun was confronted, attacked, and robbed by the three suspects.

The suspects robbed Shaun of his clothing and property, which included a cell phone, various forms of ID, keys, book bag, and books.

Shaun was viciously beaten on the head, face, and body in such a severe manner that he fell unconscious, but was later able to make it to a residence where police and medical assistance were summoned.

“I just remember the one blow and a big bright flash and next thing I know I was in the hospital,” said Shaun.

Shaun’s injuries were extensive and to the degree that he suffered several broken bones in his face and has required reconstructive surgery.

“I’ll heal I’m not going to let it ruin my life, or I”m not going to let it hold me back from any of my aspirations or anything later in life,” said Shaun in a recent interview with Fox 28.

“Probably the biggest frustration is knowing that these people are still out there and got, more or less, got away with doing this with no consequences.

The suspects are described as male blacks, late teens to early 20’s. One suspect is about 6’00”, 140-150lbs with shoulder length dread locks.

Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward for any information leading to the arrest and/or indictment of the person(s) responsible for this crime. Additional information is available at
