Man and Woman assaulted on 1st Ave.

On 12/5/09, at approximately 2:42 a.m., officers were dispatched to a call of an assault in the 2200 block of  1 Av.  Upon arrival, the victims stated they had just returned to their apartment building when they passed a group at a nearby hot dog stand. 

As they passed, one member of the group grabbed the female victim’s buttocks.  When she turned to object and her boyfriend stepped in, a group of approximately 10 males punched and kicked the male victim and then assaulted the female when she tried to intervene.  Bystanders broke up the fight and the suspects fled. 

Seattle Fire Department responded and examined the victims, but they declined medical treatment.  A search for the suspects was negative.  The victims did not provide a suspect(s) description.
