The attack happened around 1:20 a.m. Friday, June 20, at Chanello's Pizza at 109 Volvo Parkway, Suite #6.

Police say the two suspects, one identified as 24-year-old Adam Knight of Suffolk, had been at a bar in the shopping center and went into the pizza restaurant, saying they'd ordered a pizza.

When workers determined they hadn't placed an order, they became disorderly. They placed an order and, after paying for it, they were asked to leave.

Once outside, they spoke to an employee outside the front door. After beating him in the face and head, they walked off.

The second suspect has been identified, but police aren't releasing his name as they review what involvement he had, if any, in the beating, said spokeswoman Officer Dorienne Boykin.

If you can help police locate Knight, call Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.

He faces a charge of malicious wounding.
