SAN DIEGO–Detectives are investigating a recent attack that occurred at a Serra Mesa fast food restaurant.
On January 30, at about noon, the victim was inside the Taco Bell restaurant at 9800 Aero Drive when he heard two other male patrons making loud, obscene remarks. The victim asked the two males to curtail their vulgar comments as there were children present in the restaurant. One of the suspects challenged the victim and they walked out of the business. Once outside, a female companion of the suspects said something that distracted the victim. When the victim turned his head toward the female, he was attacked by one of the suspects and knocked to the ground. While he was on the ground, the victim was repeatedly punched and kicked in the head and face by the male suspects. The suspects eventually ended their attack and drove away in a silver import sedan. The victim sustained numerous cuts and abrasions to his face, hands, arms and groin.
The suspects are two white males in their mid-twenties. The primary aggressor was described as 6’1’ with a medium build. He has short red hair and a red beard. He wore a black t-shirt with a white logo, baggie black basketball-type shorts with white trim and a baseball cap. He had a white Ace wrap or bandage on his right hand and forearm. The second suspect was described as 5’9” with a medium build. He had neck length brown hair, glasses and wore a red t-shirt, dark pants and a baseball cap.
The suspects’ vehicle is described as a silver-colored sedan, similar to a Honda.
Anyone with information concerning this case is asked to contact detectives Dean Way or Joe Volker of the San Diego Police Department’s Eastern Division at (858) 495-7900, or San Diego County Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
