Three men were arrested after an assault in Old Town early Friday morning, and now police are looking to see if they may be responsible for other similar attacks in the downtown entertainment district.
The trio — two 18-year-olds and a 19-year-old — attacked a 47-year-old man outside the QuikTrip at 1010 E. Douglas shortly after 2:30 a.m. Friday, Lt. Doug Nolte said. A man in the parking lot witnessed the assault and began yelling.
Police officers on the other side of the convenience store heard the noise and ran around the building. The attackers attempted to flee, but were caught a short distance away.
A second victim was punched by one of the suspects as they attempted to flee, Nolte said. The first victim was not seriously injured in the assault.
