UPDATED June 22 – see story here: Police identify, arrest man in alleged assault near El Pollo Loco
WASHINGTON CITY – The Washington City Police Department is requesting the public’s assistance in locating two male suspects who assaulted another male in the parking lot of El Pollo Loco, 745 W. Telegraph St. in Washington, around 12:20 p.m. Thursday.
A newer model black Honda Odyssey minivan with a “Desert Thunder” sticker or insignia in the back window exited the drive-up window after the vehicle occupants received their food order. The minivan then stopped in the parking lot.
Shortly after, a passenger in the minivan became involved in a verbal argument with the driver of a pickup truck that had been in line behind the van at the drive-up window.
During the verbal altercation between the minivan passenger and the truck driver, the driver of the minivan exited the vehicle and assaulted the driver of the truck. Both the minivan passenger and driver then left the area “at a high rate of speed,” according to witnesses. Their direction of travel is unknown. The truck driver was transported to Dixie Regional Medical Center with serious injuries resulting from the assault.
The suspects are both described as white males in their mid to late 20s. One was described as having shoulder length “scraggly” hair. One removed his shirt during the incident.
Anyone who was at or near this location around the time of the incident, or has other information relating to it, and has not yet been interviewed by officers is urged to contact the Washington City Police Department through the dispatch center at 435-634-5730. Information will be kept confidential to the extent allowed by law.
