Police said the suspects were part of a large group of teens who surrounded and attacked the victims without provocation at 7:12 p.m.

The victims are a 29-year-old California woman, her 28-year-old boyfriend, and a 26-year-old man.

All three victims were treated at the scene. The older man later took himself to a hospital later where doctors determined that his eye socket had been fractured, the Sun-Times reported.

In a bulletin issued late on New Year’s Eve, police said the suspects are black males between 15- and 19-years-old who stand between 5’6” and 6-feet tall.

Anyone with information about the suspects may contact Area Central Detectives at 312-747-8380 regarding case #JB-571818.
