Police say the assault occurred at the Opal night club on the 200 block of Castro Street around 1 a.m., when the two suspects allegedly "took offense" when the Sunnyvale man put his hand on one of the suspect's chairs, according to police spokeswoman Katie Nelson.
The two men reportedly kicked and punched the victim until he was unconscious, and also struck two of the victims' friends as well as two other patrons during the attack, Nelson said. The Sunnyvale man, 26, was treated at the scene and did not need to be transported to a hospital.
The suspects were finally stopped when a large group of security guards from another business across the street intervened, Nelson said.
The two suspects, identified as 29-year-old Mountain View resident Jade Rhodes and 23-year-old Palo Alto resident Marco Lopez, were both arrested on felony battery charges.
Target robbery suspect arrested
A Mountain View man was arrested earlier this month after he allegedly stole earbuds and wine from Target and threatened to hurt an employee who tried to stop him, according to police.
The 25-year-old suspect was seen entering the store on the 500 block of Showers Drive around 3 p.m. on Sunday, April 15, when he allegedly grabbed multiple sets of earbuds and bottles of wine before trying to leave through the front of the store, according to police spokeswoman Katie Nelson.
When confronted by an employee on the way out, the suspect allegedly threatened to physically harm the employee before running away, Nelson said.
Officers found the man a short distance away on Ortega Avenue and arrested him on robbery charges as well as violating his probation.
