Put perps ‘away with Bubba,’ father of Main Street attack victim says

Jay Hamburger The Park Record

The father of one of the men attacked on Main Street earlier in March is offering a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the two perpetrators.

Ken Soler said the reward money by the middle of the week had reached $3,100. He said he put in some of the money and friends of the victim, Jeffrey Soler, donated to the pool of money as well.

The father said he expects the attackers will brag about the case to others. Those people could then provide information, he said.

"I’m hoping to find these two turkeys and put them away with Bubba," Soler said.

Jeffrey Soler remains in "bad shape," his father said. He saw a surgeon and a neurologist in the last week. He suffered a broken jaw, a broken nose and a concussion in the attack. He was taken by ambulance to the Park City Medical Center after the March 11 and then flown by medical helicopter to a Salt Lake City hospital. He was later released and has returned to his home in South Florida.

The other person injured in the attack, who was with Soler on Main Street, was taken to the local hospital and released.

The father said he plans to send a letter to Mayor Dana Williams and the Park City Council centered on safety issues on Main Street. He said Main Street is unsafe and people are not being cautioned.

The person who was with Soler earlier told The Park Record the two of them were walking toward their hotel on lower Main Street when two strangers confronted them and then attacked.
