Carbondale police are asking the public for assistance in identifying three female suspects they said were involved in battering a 55-year-old man two weeks ago.

At 8:33 p.m. Nov. 16, officers responded to the Wal-Mart at 1450 East Main Street in reference to a fight in progress. Police said the victim, a 55-year-old man from Carbondale, was driving in Wal-Mart’s parking lot when his vehicle was struck from behind by another vehicle, which was occupied by three black females.

The females got out of their vehicle, yelling and cursing at the man, police said. The three suspects followed him into the store. After the victim made his purchases, the females — along with two or three black males — battered the man in the parking lot, authorities said. They stopped the beating when other customers exited the store, police said in a news release Tuesday.
