ST. CLOUD, Minn (KNSI) The parents of a young man who died after he was attacked in a St. Cloud alley want answers about their son's death.

Twenty-year-old Colton Gleason, of Greenfield, died from head trauma Friday.

Police say Gleason was walking with two female friends when several people got out of a car and one punched him, causing him to fall backward and hit his head.

His parents, John and Julie Gleason say their world is a darker place without their son. They are hoping a $1,000 reward will persuade a witness to come forward.

It's unclear what prompted the assault, but police say they have no reason to believe Gleason and the assailant knew each other.
