Around 8:00 p.m. on Dec. 18, 2017, two men went into a Long Wong's Restaurant and were reportedly causing a disturbance. As a result, two restaurant employees asked the suspects to leave.

When the employees were leaving the business, police said they were attacked by the men. The employees were a 16-year-old boy and a 23-year-old woman. Authorities said one of them suffered from a large laceration to the scalp and an "orbital fracture" due to the assault. After the attack, the men left in a white Chevy Impala.

Authorities say the first suspect is a black man, about 6 feet tall and 220 pounds, with short black hair and a beard. At the time of the incident, he was wearing a striped red shirt with a Bulls fitted cap. While there wasn't much of a description for the second suspect, police say he is also a black man and was wearing a gray sweatshirt at the time. 

If anyone has information on this situation, police advise contacting Silent Witness anonymously at 480-WITNESS of 480-TESTIGO for Spanish speaking.
