Pittsburgh Police tell Channel 11 they have identified two women and a man who they say assaulted and robbed two women in the bathroom of a North Shore Bar.

According to detectives, the attack happened in the women’s bathroom of Shorty’s Pins and Pints.

It is unclear what prompted the violence.

Investigators say one of the women stated that she had been punched in the ear. The other said she had been punched multiple times in the face, and was bleeding from a laceration to her left eyebrow.

Medics treated both women on scene, but the woman who had been punched multiple times was transported to the hospital for stitches.

One of the women reported that her wallet was stolen during the attack.

People in the North Shore were shocked to learn of the attack.

“It’s really shocking that a man actually followed a woman into the bathroom. It’s kind of scary,” Myranda Minor, who works in the North Shore told Channel 11.

Channel 11 received a statement from Craig Winning, the Chief Operating Officer of Shorty’s Pins and Pints:

“We are aware of the incident that occurred within Shorty’s Pins x Pints on the morning of Sunday, April 10 around 2 a.m.

Our team reacted immediately to the incident by providing first aid assistance where possible and calling 911 for police and an EMT.

We are working closely with law enforcement in an effort to identify the suspects, and will continue to do so until the case is closed.

The safety of our guests and our team is of the utmost importance to us. Our entire team is trained in conflict resolution, and we strive for a safe and friendly environment at all times.”

No one has been charged in the attack.
