• ASSAULT: Police are investigating a reported assault at 1 p.m. Saturday in the 1800 block of Pierce Avenue. The victim, a 21-year-old woman, was at a hospital on 10th Street when she told officers she was attacked by four individuals she'd never seen before for no reason she could recall. She said these four individuals came out of nowhere and punched her in the face until she fell to the ground. Then they began punching and kicking her before running away laughing. She said the first suspect was a black male in his late teens, about 5-foot-7 wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and dark pants. The second suspect, she said, was a black woman in her late teens wearing a maroon coat and a piercing above her right eye. The third suspect, also a black female in her late teens, was wearing a green coat and had a tongue piercing. The final suspect was wearing a brown coat and appeared to be pregnant, she said. Police said visible wounds were evidenced on the victim's face and right arm at the time of the report.
