Authorities are looking for six or seven men after two joggers were injured in separate attacks along a path in Fridley Sunday afternoon.
Police tell WCCO that the victims were near East River Road and 37th Avenue NE when they were jumped by a group of men about 20 minutes apart between 3:30 and 4 p.m.
Police say the attacks weren't robbery attempts and the suspects randomly approached the joggers. One man suffered a bloody nose and the other a sore throat.
A local crime watch group says the area is normally patrolled by both Fridley police and sheriff's deputies. Stepped-up enforcement takes place during summer hours.
