On Saturday, March 23, at around 6:45 p.m., police responded to the Fairmont Copley Plaza hotel at 138 St. James Ave. for an assault and battery in progress.
On arrival, the officer spoke to the victim, a doorman who said he was assisting a guest at the front door when the two suspects pulled into the valet area and exited a red Toyota Yaris with New Jersey license plates. When the doorman asked the suspect if they wanted their car valeted, they ig-nored him and walked into the hotel.
The victim followed the suspects inside to inform them there was a fee to park, and that he would need their keys. At this time, the suspects refused to pay while dangling their keys in front of the victim’s face.
The first suspect then struck the victim, knocking his glasses to the ground and cutting him below his left eye.
Both suspects then ran towards their car as the victim tried to stop them.
