Nash suffered serious injuries to his legs and back, police said.

He told police that he only knew his assailant as “Rick,” and detectives did not release any description of the suspect. Anyone with infomration about the suspect is urged to call HPD’s Major Assaults and Family Violence Division at 713-308-8800 or Houston Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS (8477).
