Police said a 15-year-old male was assaulted Saturday night outside Dick's Sporting Goods at Montgomery Mall, and the two suspects fled the scene.
Police said the two suspects were occupying an older model tan or gold-colored SUV, possibly a Toyota 4-Runner four door, having a loud muffler and rear-mounted spare tire.
The suspects were driving around the mall property and stopped and engaged a group of juveniles standing on the sidewalk near Dick's Sporting Goods at 9:45 p.m. Saturday.

The passenger confronted the 15-year-old male victim, police said. Words were exchanged, and the suspect struck the victim in the face with the bat, causing serious facial injuries, police said.
The suspects then got back into the car and fled the scene, police said.
