LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Police are searching for a group of suspects involved in a violent attack on Las Vegas Boulevard in Aug.. 

Officers said they located two male victims suffering from a variety of injuries at about 6:15 a.m. on Aug. 25 in the 3600 block of South Las Vegas Boulevard.

The men were walking through a retail shopping area at that location when a woman took property from one of the victims, according to Metro.

An altercation then took place between the parties that led to a group of five men following the victims and beating them at a nearby location.

Younes Zidal, who works at the Grand Bazaar Shops said "You get gunshots every once in a while people get wired up. They think everyone got money in here. So everybody is trying to rob somebody." 

"Once the night hits, it's pretty more prominent with the crime with people trying to sell drugs and do all that kind of stuff out here," Brandon Coppola,who works at the Grand Bazaar Shops at the Redneck Riviera said.

Authorities said the suspects took additional property from the two men before fleeing the area on foot.

Police urged anyone with information about the identity of the seven suspects wanted in connection with this incident to contact Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
