View Larger Map

A group of party poopers spoiled a birthday party guest's good time at a restaurant near the Dogpatch neighborhood on Sunday, police said.

The 31-year-old female victim was attending a birthday party at a restaurant in the 800 block of Terry A. Francois Boulevard about 4:30 p.m. when a group of three men and one woman entered the eatery and got into a verbal argument with the victim.

One member of the group punched the woman in the face and she dropped her phone, police said. Another member of the group snatched the victim's phone before fleeing the scene with one other suspect.

The woman claimed of pain to her face but refused medical treatment at the scene.

Two of the suspects were arrested and two are still at large.
