Ann Arbor police Lt. Renee Bush said police responded at 2:13 a.m. Friday to the intersection of Thompson and Liberty streets for a report of an assault. Bush said a 31-year-old Dearborn man and a 29-year-old Ypsilanti man reported being beat up by a group of people.

Bush said the two injured men did not know who the people that had jumped them and they didn’t know what had happened. The suspects fled on foot before police arrived.

The men were taken to the University of Michigan Hospital emergency room to be treated for facial injuries, Bush said.

There was no suspect description available from police Friday morning.

Anyone with information on this incident is encouraged to call the Ann Arbor police anonymous tip line at 734-794-6939 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK UP (773-2587)

As long as the victim doesn't defend himself with a gun, all is good in A2.

It is ILLEGAL to carry a gun while under the influence of alcohol. Where do you think the victim was coming from at 2:30am on a Friday in downtown Ann Arbor? Church?

As long the attackers didn't kill the victims with a gun before the victims could shoot back (because the victims don't shoot every stranger that passes them by), all is good in A2. As a reminder, the attacker always gets first shot...real life is not a Hollywood movie.

This Friday? If so, change p.m. to a.m. For a second I thought I was at work on a Saturday and I was miffed, and then I thought this might be a prediction of things to come. Sorry. I couldn't help myself.

The story originally said this happened at 2:13 p.m. That was a typo, it was this morning.
