2 sought in brutal South Side assault
Pittsburgh police are looking for two men who severely beat a man and sexually assaulted a woman on the South Side early Thursday.
The 22-year-old man from Port Vue and 23-year-old woman from Monroeville were walking along South 13th Street at Sarah Street about 3:45 a.m. when two men wearing white T-shirts and denim shorts attacked them, said Major Crimes Lt. Kevin Kraus.
The man was beaten severely in the head and face, then the attackers took the woman into a nearby alley, where she was beaten and sexually assaulted, Kraus said.
The men then ran away, and someone nearby called police and medical personnel.
The woman was treated at UPMC South Side hospital. The man was taken to UPMC Presbyterian hospital in Oakland, where he underwent surgery for head injuries, Kraus said. The man was in serious but stable condition yesterday.
Anyone with information on the suspects is asked to call the city's Major Crimes Squad at 412-323-7800.
