Two men were arrested Friday and charged with assaulting three women at Sabor Latino in Riverhead, according to a Riverhead Town police press release.
Riverhead residents Carlos and Marlon Muyus-Boror, ages 42 and 28, were involved in a dispute with the victims at around 3:40 a.m., police said. A sign posted on Sabor Latino’s front entrance says the business closes at 10 p.m. on Thursdays.
The women were allegedly struck by the men, one of whom had a baseball bat, police said. The report did not specify which person had the bat.
A group of people, including Marlon Muyus-Boror, were found arguing outside at the back of the building when police arrived at the scene, officials said.
Carlos Muyus-Boror had fled the area, but was apprehended a short distance away, police said.
One victim was taken to Peconic Bay Medical Center and treated for non-life threatening injuries, officials said. All three women were from Roosevelt, police said.
Marlon Muyus-Boror was charged with second-degree assault and Carlos Muyus-Boror was charged with second-degree harassment, police said.
The bar and restaurant, located on Route 58, is the same establishment where police say Guillermo Alvarado-Ajcuc, 23, became intoxicated before following 29-year-old Mirian Yohana Garcia Mansilla outside to rape and kill her in May 2012.
He was found guilty of two counts of murder last year.
When reached for comment about the recent police report of an assault, a person who answered the phone at Sabor Latino on Friday hung up.
