FULLERTON (CBSLA.com) — Police sought the public’s help Thursday in identifying two males suspected of assaulting three victims over the weekend.

According to the Fullerton Police Department, a fight broke out between the suspects and three male victims in front of Tuscany Club in the 100 block of North Harbor Boulevard around 2 a.m. Saturday.

KCAL9’s Bobby Kaple spoke with the general manager of the bar, Mark Elliott, about the what happened during the fight.

“I know we had our doors closed,” said Elliott. “Our guards were telling us one guy jumped three or four other guys. They beat him up and then took off.”

The victims were approached by the suspects who questioned why they were looking at one of the suspects’ girlfriends, officers said.

Authorities said one victim was punched in the face and fell to the ground and struck his head. He was rushed to a hospital trauma center.

“The first victim sustained some head trauma, and he has been in a coma since Saturday,” Sgt. Kathryn Hamel said.

The second victim dislocated a shoulder during the attack. He received treatment and was released from a hospital, officials said.

According to officers, the third victim sustained cuts and bruises from the fight. It was unclear if he received treatment for his injuries.

Police described the first suspect as a white male in his mid-20s, with brown spiked hair, light brown eyes and is clean shaved.

He has a muscular build, weighs 210 pounds, is 6 feet tall and was seen wearing a long-sleeve collared button-down shirt. Officers also said this suspect spoke with a deep voice.

The second suspect is described as a white or light-skinned Hispanic male also in his mid-20s, with short black hair and is clean shaved.

He is 5-foot-8, weighs 180 pounds and was seen wearing a red T-shirt with unknown lettering. Police said this suspect has a distinct haircut with lines shaved into the sides of his scalp.

The girlfriend, who accompanied both suspects, is described as a white female with blonde hair and was seen wearing a white tank top. Police believe that she may be the first suspect’s girlfriend.

The assault was captured on surveillance cameras, which also revealed witnesses who may have captured the attack on their cellphones, authorities said.

The investigation is continuing, and anyone with information about the incident is urged to contact detectives at (714) 738-5361.
