Bar Beat-Down

Police and Quad City Crimestoppers are trying to find out who attacked two customers at a Moline bar last month. The brutal beat-down was caught on tape.

It happened at a place called Salute on Seven, in the Olde Town neighborhood of the city.

"The officers were able to get the video and on the video it shows the eight or ten individuals just beating these two people with clubs, pipes, we recovered a wrench from the scene," said Detective Scott Williams. "There was blood in the bathroom, blood outside."

It happened at closing time on the bar's outdoor patio area July 10th. The video was released Monday with the hopes that someone will recognize some of the attackers.

"This was not your typical bar fight, they were looking for these people and when they found them, they beat them good," Williams said. "The cameras are everything, if people can identify and call Crimestoppers with their names, then police can do their jobs."

Williams says the victims were treated at a local hospital but are recovering now. He says the two tell police they don't know who attacked them or why.

Anyone with information can call Quad City Crimestoppers at 309-762-9500, and receive up to a $1,000 reward for a tip that leads to an arrest and prosecution in this case.
