Police Seeking Men in Assault at Patchogue Diner

Police are seeking the public’s help to locate a group of men pictured above who they say assaulted a couple at a Patchogue diner in January.

According to police, a couple was eating at the California Diner, located at 570 Sunrise Highway South Service Road, when a group of four males sitting near the couple began making lewd comments to the female on Jan. 12 at approximately 3:20 a.m. 

The couple decided to leave and went to the register to pay, police said.

The four males followed them and three of the men began to assault the male, police said. The woman attempted to push the suspects away and then she was assaulted as well, police said.

The suspects fled and the male and female victims were treated at Brookhaven Memorial Hospital Medical Center, police said. 

Suffolk County Crime Stoppers offers a cash reward of up to $5,000 for information that leads to an arrest. Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.

Wouldn't happen in a "right to carry" area. I meet the most polite people at gun shows and shooting ranges.
