The two victims, a 39-year-old man and 29-year-old woman, were in the area of Jackson Street and Grant Avenue about 1:17 a.m. when a man in his 30s approached them from behind and attacked the man unprovoked, police said.
The woman tried to intervene and the thug turned around and hit her several times in the face, knocking out some teeth, police said.
The suspect fled in an unknown direction and no arrest was made as of today.
The male victim sustained some swelling to his forehead and the woman lost a few teeth and complained of pain to her head, police said. They were treated at the hospital for their injuries, which were not life-threatening.
