GLENDALE, Ariz. – Glendale police are asking for help finding two suspects who physically assaulted a man during a beer run on Dec. 28.

According to Sgt. David Vidaure, a man and a woman entered the Circle K store at Glendale and 43rd avenues just after 9 p.m., selected beer from the cooler and exited the store without paying.

A security guard for a nearby facility was in the store and attempted to intervene in the parking lot. Vidaure said the male suspect hit the guard, knocking him unconscious. The female suspect proceeded to strike the victim additional times while he was on the ground.

The suspects left in a dark-colored SUV with several additional occupants.

The victim sustained multiple fractures and was transported to a local hospital for treatment.

One suspect is described as a Hispanic or light-skinned black male in his mid to late 20s, approximately 6 feet tall, 200 pounds with short, dark hair and a mustache or goatee. He has tattoos on his hands and a large tattoo on the back of his neck.

The second suspect is described as a Hispanic female, 5 feet 4 inches tall with brown hair. She appears to be in her mid to late 20s.

Police have released photos of the suspects and vehicle.
