Officers were dispatched at 1:51 a.m. March 18 to Scobie's Sports Bar and Grill, 2431 Central Ave., after a report of an assault with a deadly weapon. The officers found one man with a cut to his neck and a second with a cut to his head. Investigators described the injuries as serious, but not life-threatening.
The three suspects, including a woman, ran from the scene before officers arrived. One victim, a 29-year-old Oakland resident, was treated at Highland Hospital in Oakland, while the second victim, 26, was treated at Alameda Hospital for the head wound. He also lives in Oakland.

While the attack remains under investigation, it may have begun as a verbal altercation inside the bar that escalated as people were leaving at closing time. The first suspect was described as an Asian man between 24 and 27 years old, about 5 feet 8 inches tall and 160 to 170 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes.
