COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Police are searching for two men in connection with an assault in Five Points Jan. 9.

Jennifer Timmons with the Columbia Police Department said the incident happened shortly after 2:30 a.m. in the 2100 block of Devine Street.

"CPD Investigators want to identify and locate the alleged aggressor in the case," Timmons said. "The taller male with the dread locks, who was seen wearing a black toboggan, black ‘bubble' vest with a red and white plaid long-sleeved shirt."

Timmons said investigators believe the shorter male, who was wearing red pants; a black leather jacket and a baseball cap at the time of the incident may be able to assist investigators.

The male victim reported that the taller male punched him several times about his head and body, Timmons said.

It is believed that the victim was trying to calm down a heated conversation between the alleged aggressor and a male that was standing outside of the 2100 block Devine Street, Timmons said.

The victim did not seek medical attention at the time of the incident but did sustain minor injuries.
