DENVER — Denver police are asking for the public's help finding a person accused of tackling the Colorado Rockies' mascot during a game at Coors Field Monday.
Dinger was tackled while dancing on top of the team's dugout during their game against the St. Louis Cardinals.
The beloved mascot quickly got to his feet after the attack.
Police on Thursday released a photo of the person accused of assaulting Dinger. Police said that person is wanted for a simple assault that caused injury.
Editor's note: 9NEWS has chosen to remove the picture of the person who tackled Dinger since he has since turned himself in to police.
Anyone with information is asked to call Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867. Tipsters can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $2,000.
Dinger, a purple triceratops, has been the Rockies' official mascot since his debut on April 16, 1994. The team went with a dinosaur as its mascot because fossil fragments were found during the construction of Coors Field.
While the bones were never identified as a specific species, triceratops fossils have been found in the area.
A bobblehead of Dinger that was released in 2014 to commemorate his 20th birthday is preserved in a collection at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.
