SPOKANE, Wash.--No arrests have been made on a assault in Downtown Spokane in early October.

David Hennessey said he was kicked, slapped and punched several times. He also said he suffered a punctured lung and three broken ribs. Hennessey had to spend eight hours in the emergency room after he was jumped by two men.

“Three fractured ribs, punctured lung, cut under my eye, deep bruising on my arm and hip,” said Hennessey.

Hennessey is still recovering.

The girl he was walking with was also assaulted. She was pushed to the ground and the suspects stole her phone.

“First they punched once, and when I was on the ground they were kicking me,” said Hennessey.

The violence happened in a parking lot near the former Globe Bar and Grill.

“I've been worried to come back to this parking lot and parking here again,” said Hennessey.

No has been arrested in the case yet. A witness of the fight and a friend of Hennessey’s provided him with a picture of the suspects that she had randomly taken the night of the attack.

The same suspect had also given Hennessey’s friend a phone number. Both the number and the picture were turned over to Spokane Police. Detectives did a search warrant on phone records belonging to the phone number and they were untraceable.

Major Crimes Detectives are actively investigating the circumstances behind the assault. They said they do not believe the public is in danger.
