The second victim reported one of the men threw a can “of something” at her friend’s head and then pushed her down and began to punch her in the head. At the same time, the other man and his companion were assaulting the second victim.
One of the male suspects pointed a silver gun in her face while the other man punched her in the face. She said she dropped her purse containing her iPhone onto the ground. The female suspect picked up the iPhone and threw it on the ground.
