###ORIGINAL MESSAGE BELOW###
This morning, Monday January 30, 2012, at 5:42 a.m., Portland Police officers from Central Precinct responded to the report of an assault and car prowl in the Smart Park parking garage, located at Southeast 3rd Avenue and Alder Street.
Officers arrived in the area and spoke with the two victims who told police that they are Smart Park employees and were cleaning drains in the garage when they encountered two men on the 8th floor and that the suspects appeared to have prowled a car. The car, as it turns out, belonged to one of the victims.
The victims confronted the suspects, and one suspect started hitting both victims with a metal pipe and the other was armed with a handgun, but did not fire any shots.
The victims told the police that the suspects fled the 8th floor and ran into the stairwell that exits at Southwest 3rd and Morrison. One suspect had a backpack taken from the victim's car.
One victim was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The other was treated by medical personnel at the scene.
The suspects are described as white males in their 20s, 5'08" - 5"10", slim to medium builds, wearing black hoodies, one with a shaved head.
