Vernal police are asking for the public's help in bringing to justice two men who sexually assaulted and robbed another man outside a downtown restaurant.

Vernal police spokesman Keith Campbell said Monday that the incident occurred about 10:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 8, after the victim left the Quarry Steakhouse and Brewery, at 25 S. Vernal Avenue, and walked into an alley. The suspects, described only as two white males, overpowered and assaulted the man, then looted his car parked nearby.

The attackers were last seen running from the parking lot when another vehicle pulled into the restaurant's parking lot, Campbell said.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to contact the Vernal Police Department at 435-789-5835.
