Three hospitalized in Atwater assault

Three people were hospitalized early Sunday after they were apparently assaulted at an Atwater bar, police said.

Few details were immediately clear as the investigation progressed Sunday afternoon.

Atwater police responded at 1:10 a.m. to a restaurant bar in the 1300 block of Commerce Avenue.

Officers found Juan Vidal, age unavailable, outside the bar unconscious. Police said Vidal and Froilan Alcazar, age unavailable, were assaulted by one or more people who have not been arrested. Both males were hospitalized, Lt. Samuel Joseph said.

Descriptions of a suspect or suspects were not available.

A third person, whose identity was not released Sunday, was also hospitalized in connection with the same incident, police said.

It was unclear if any weapons were involved. Police did not comment on any possible motives in the incident.
