The assault occurred inside the Chipotle at 3113 14th St. NW about 2 p.m. Sunday.

The victim was waiting for members of his family to order food when five people entered the eatery, according to authorities. At least some of the individuals were kids.

The five people soon after punched the victim’s face and other parts of his body. The attackers then used chairs to strike the man’s head and back.

During the assault, the victim dropped his cellphone, which one of his assailants grabbed before fleeing with the other attackers.

The victim declined medical treatment, police said.

Authorities haven’t released descriptions of the suspects.

The attack came about a month after somebody was stabbed after trying to run away from a group of people who were at the same Chipotle.

A man also tried to sexually assault a woman in Logan Circle on Friday, police said Saturday.

The attempted sexual abuse happened on the 1300 block of M Street NW about 12:45 a.m. Friday.

The victim was walking in the area just east of Thomas Circle Park when the man grabbed her and tried to attack her, according to authorities.

Police are looking for:

A black male, 22-24 years of age, dark complexion, wearing dark pants, a dark puffy coat with hood, and a red hat.
