TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucson Police ask for the public's help in locating two suspects who allegedly assaulted a person during a reported beer skip.

Police said a man did not pay for two 30-packs of beer from a Circle K store at 10 W. Fort Lowell Road on Oct. 5.

As he left around 2 p.m., a customer followed him outside the store to confront him, which allegedly prompted the suspect to swing a knife at the man. The customer backed away and was attacked from behind by the second suspect, according to a news release. The first suspect continued to assault but did not stab the man, the release said.

Sgt. Chris Widmer with the Tucson Police Department said a nearby Samaritan grabbed a large rock and confronted the suspects, who then fled the scene on foot.

Police described both suspects as Hispanic men in their twenties.

The first suspect was last seen wearing a red short sleeve polo shirt over a white t-shirt, and a red baseball cap. The second man wore all black clothing and has a small build, police said.

Authorities would also like to talk to the good Samaritan who helped the customer.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
