Big photos, videos below.
Update: Yesterday, we told you about the naming of a suspect, Tilo Sandoval, in the brutal, bias-motivated attack against Jared Olson outside a local nightspot last week. See our previous coverage below.

Now, Sandoval has surrendered to authorities.

He's being held on a $30,000 bond and is expected to make his first court appearance tomorrow.

Here are the latest developments.

Just shy of 6 p.m. last night, the Denver Police Department tweeted the following:

Sandoval is suspected of having shouted anti-gay slurs at Olson and a couple of friends in the parking lot of Sam's Hookah Lounge on September 2, then turned these violent words into actions. Olson sustained broken bones in his face, as well as chipped and dislodged teeth, in the attack.

In court this morning, Sandoval is expected to be advised of the charges against him: second-degree assault, assault causing injury and bias-motivated crime.

Around the time Sandoval surrendered, Olson shared a very personal post on the Justice for Jared Facebook page. In it, he shares his version of events and shows his class by pleading for the humanity of the person who inflicted so much damage upon him:
A few days ago I told you all I'd make a video! That video has been made but it wont upload! Here I will tell you the story from my stand point instead! Keep in mind there were TWO other people with me! 2 friends and I went to Sams Hookah around 2:15 am on 9|2|13. We walked in to find the place empty after paying $5 at the door! After looking around we made a mutual agreement to leave! As we walked to our car, there were a group of about 8 people standing in between 2 cars to our right! Right when we got to our car door ONE guy started yelling at us! I got in the back seat passengers side and attempted to avoid the situation then my other 2 friends got in as well! He kept yelling the same exact thing as he was walking towards our car. I watched him walk to my door, open it, and punch me in the face! I had no idea that the other friend was also hit until later on. According to our driver, they were surrounding our car before we sped off! We left and I was dropped off at a local hospital. Keep in mind this was IN NO WAY WHATSOEVER provoked on our part! The Denver Police came up with the term "hate crime" and others on Facebook! I'd like to thank the numerous organizations and foundations that have reached out and offered help to me! My main concern is getting my teeth and face repaired. As you all know, MULTIPLE people have identified the suspect they are saying is involved with my case! For everyone that thinks they have a different story or version, I advise you to call the DPD and discuss it with them! I thank you ALL for your continued support. No matter the circumstance, the suspect is still a human and needs to be treated as one. PERIOD. Just like me that's somebody friend, kid or family! I appreciate it but please be respectful on all aspects from here on out! Love you all♥

If knowing and willing adults want to do gay/lesbian conduct & not harass others, then leave them alone, but it needs to be treated like smoking. It's best to find cure for gay/lesbian behaviors, no matter why it happens. To homosexual/lesbian groups, their heros are people such as homosexual stautory rapist coward Harvey B. Milk. Kids must not trust homosexual/lesbian teachers because there's something wrong with homosexual/lesbian behaviors just as there's something wrong with drug junkyism with transexuals being the worse abominations. They must abolish sex change maimings. Homosexual/lesbian groups side with homosexual no matter what the homosexuals do including again coward Harvey B. Milk. 

With Harvey B. Milk homosexual/lesbian groups such as Laramie Project, Shepard Foundation and Journalist Tiffany Camille Edwards Hunt of Big Island Chronicle see nothing wrong with Harvey B. Milk committing homosexual statutory rape on a 16 year old boy in 1964. Tiffany Camille Edwards Hunt's a farting Squaw who while pregnant sometimes did turds in front of her husband. 

Regarding gay bashings happening in Russia.  I have never been to Russia (though would like to), but the Russian men are bashing adult gays to stop the gays from homolesting 15 year old boys. The Russian men pretended to be 15 year old boys on Internet so that they could bash these gays.Those gays were looking for 15 year old boys to homolest but instead got bashed by men pretending to be 15 year old boys. 

Yes, they should report this to cops and let the cops arrest the gays but I have no sympathy for these gays who get bashed. If a gay is going to look for 15 year old boys on Internet to meet and abuse-if instead they get bashed by men who pretended to be the 15 year old they had hoped to meet, then no sympathy for the gay. The Russian men who are bashing gays are doing this because they won't tolerate gays going after teenage boys. yes, while vigilanteism must still be punished by law as you have to do it legally with cops arresting the gays who abuse teenage boys and then the legal system punishing the gays after they've been hopefully convicted, what is happening here is vigilanteism. The gays who are looking for teenage boys to homolest get no sympathy for being bashed. Yes, vigilanteism must be punished by law as what is being done here is assault & battery, but it's less sensational than what media makes it out to be.

With gay bashings as to why they happen. I’ve found that gays often harass, commit indecent exposure & commit assault/battery on teenage boys to men in early 20s & the men react by bashing the gay. Many gay bashing cases are cases similar to Stephen Eric Starr’s case where a teenage boy bashes or kills a 30 something gay who was harassing him because many gays harass teenage boys. I would rather have a case where a jury decides if a man’s reaction to bashing or killing a gay after the gay did indecent exposure was justified or excess, vs. the man not doing enough & the gay does something worse. There are many cases, but a gay bashing case I know of from many years ago in Arizona. What had happened was that an 18 year old boy had been in a park with friends. A gay who was much bigger than him grabbed the boy’s butt (assault & battery) & made a sex comment. The boy then told his 2 friends what gay did. After this, the 2 men grabbed the gay, brought him to the boy who then hit the gay several times in the face. 

That ‘gay bashing’ victim committed a crime-assault&battery & the boy reacted by bashing him. If that teenage boy had tried to walk away , that gay would likely have attacked him because the gay had a secret violent history (unreported to cops) of beating up teenager boys to men in early 20s after harassing them for sex & these cases unpredictable. Better to do too much than not enough in cases like that. That gay deserves no sympathy for getting hit in the face. This gay again had beaten up other teenager boys after committing assault & battery (ass grabbing), was likely trying to do it to this teenager boy, but because this teenager boy had 2 friends who were with him, they were able to defend this boy before he got beaten up. If the defense lawyer in a gay bashing case wants to bring up criminal acts the gay did such as if gay committed indecent exposure, harassment, assault & battery, etc. before the man reacted violently, then jury decides if gay basher used reasonable or excessive force. In this cases, we only know the gays sto but gays often tell fairy tales. Most gay bashings are men reacting to crimes the gay & transexual ( worse than gays) did. They must abolish sex change mutilations.

I do not see this as a positive development, convict him of the hate crime, that will be a positive development.

Gay basher's are usually men who are insecure in their own sexuality. Being gay should not offend another man unless he is weak in his own convictions or brainwashed by the vile beast we call religion....Glenn Greenwald is a gay man and has more balls than most 'masculine' men I know today....

I'm really bummed to see that this kind of homophobic action/behavior is taking place today, especially in Denver! We need to keep these bigots out of our city. Denver Queers bash back!!! Justice for Jared Olson!!!

I am also a gay man who lives in Denver who actually WAS attacked randomly outside a bar for being gay. Sorry you are unable to to see how often and likely it is to occur but it has picked up since the legalization of gay marriage debates. Your ignorance is your own problem. If there is more to the story we will find out, but your assumption is pitiful.

Dont threaten people with your plagiarized fictional deity. That is rude and condescending. You dont know what occurred and his sexual attraction doesnt make it ok to attack him. Your deity is a monster and your irrational superstitious get people attacked and killed. Thanks.

Well hate crime and violence is all over
the country and I just finished reading a book about it. White Girl
Bleed a Lot: The return of racial violence to America. http://whitegirlbleedalot.com/.
It's about hate crimes, racial crimes, mob violence, violence against
gays.. etc. It's a collection of violence mostly have videos. You might
not believe it but it's really happening. So scary. I think there's
more than 50 cities.

The bible is a book of fables,written 2nd, 3rd and 4th hand, HUNDREDS of years after Jesus died. Your obviously a mentally disturbed person. I can have no respect for your god or your interpretation of christ. I suggest phenobarbital, or some other anit-psychotic. Either way, I couldn't give a shit what you have to say, nor you me. So, again, you and your imaginary friend can SUCK IT.

Here's a perfect example of the 'sexual rage' that homosexuality produces.. tell me again how it's all about 'Love' and 'Happiness'.. and I'll call Bullshit! It's about domination, fear and being 'weakened to accept being 'punked' as a sensual lust; rather than standing up to protect Your God's own ass from being desecrated! Homosexuality is a sin against the Christ. Those who choose to sin willfully against God, by enacting homosexuality are to be condemned eternally for their giving their worship over unto the Whore of Babylon and her worship, and the serpents; rather than to accept God's marriage supper invite and the Third Adam concept in your being redeemed from the cross to accept His Spouse; opposite your gender as a centered embassy for growing God's fruit (His children; ours!) If you bare false witness of your gender, by choosing to act contrary to your own sex; while having sex, your guilty of Baring FAlse witness of God! Whom, by the way, is not Gay nor will act out 'gay' activities within any temple born of God! And... for your info Christopher.. you can read 1 Corinthians 6:9 (Christ in Paul) speaking about how neither 'Homosexuals' nor even the effiminate; can enter into the Kingdom of our God. And we know in John that Jesus prayed that 'as it is in Heaven, so shall it be also upon this earth!'... meaning that the 'anti-gay' theme of Heaven (1 corinth 6:9) should also be apportioned unto this earth! And.. that part where you said the Bible says we are not to Judge... yeah.. that's Bullshiz too! We are to Judge those in our Church, and we are called to discipline people unto obedience to Jesus the Christ. We are told how we are to do all of this, and taught how as His children. By what measure you Judge, you will be Judged.. (Judge not lest ye be Judged) doesn't mean.. don't Judge.. but we are told not to judge according to mere appearances; but we are told to use God's words as our weapons against all unrighteousness! We are told in 1 John 3: 6-10.. that those who 'continue to sin' .. have not Known God.. nor seen Him! That they are not righteous who do not do righteousness.. and again.. we already know God has shown; sodomy and homosexuality are 'unrighteous' (unworthy God's Heaven; even upon earth!)... Yes.. choosing Homosexuality; choosing to 'out' yourself.. you are 'outing yourself' from God! I pray every homosexual repent, before death is drawn by God upon them; for not accepting the wages of sin being paid up on that cross we must all need Go (accept); before knowing whom God is in our own lives; anew from that cross! -

Mike Cofer

Nobody deserves to be drawn unto blood; but if you don't live in 'His' (Jesus the Christ) then you are not protected by Him! God is no respecter of persons, but he surely has no footing in those who 'continue in sin'. (1 John 3:6-10). Those who place themselves outside God's will, by continued sinful living deserve the wrath of God because they haven't died with Him. Don't Hate God for what Wrath He draws on the unrepentant sinner! Even if God uses 'other sinners' to carry out His wrath; who is there to call God unjust?! Nobody! Again.. I don't justify a man to be put to blood much less death; but there are many who's own words & actions do! -

Christopher Johnston
Christopher Johnston

And, I would submit, as a lover of peace and love, I am more of a Christian than you are. Jesus never said a word about homosexuals. And he also said "judge not". So where you get your right to judge, I have no idea. But, it ain't in the Bible.

Christopher Johnston
Christopher Johnston

You are correct, nobody deserves to be beaten like that for any reason. I just don't buy that it was a random attack, that there was not some interaction previous to this. And, oddly he makes no mention of it. So spontaneously from seeing him this person beat him that viciously. I guess that is possible, but not likely. I would bet money that some form of argument occurred prior to the attack.

Mike Cofer
Mike Cofer

I see that as a Christian I am in a war with those who call christians 'homophobes' and haters; who want to 'out' (Punk) people (especially Christians) into 'supporting' faggotry as 'the American Way'.. I would rather kill a fag (rapist sodomite) then be their punk! Am I somehow not 'right' in wanting to protect my God in His interest to keep me Holy as He is Holy? Sorry if my grammar doesn't meet your standards.. I hope always to do better; thanks for raising the bar! :)

I enjoy that you don't acknowledge that the guys who beat the shit out of him sinned too. That said, your grammatical skills point in the direction that logical thinking in general is not something you're great at.

A.) It was a Hookah bar (which at the very least means alcohol wasn't involved) and B.) Does it really matter? Do his actions in any way mean he deserved what he got?

My brother was chased for over a mile in a car, shot and killed at which time the shooter fled the scene...He got 6 years in prison. There's no justice in this state.

If your 'out and out' a fag.. you get what you get.. there's no justification for you; Christ stands adamantly opposed to Homosexual desecrations! I would not protect flesh that holds to sinful pride! I will not support sinners having 'protections' for their sins; and we know the wages of sin are death.. I pray he repents of his sin; that God doesn't have need to continue bringing His wrath unto him for His sins! Homosexuality is a Crime against God!
