OGDEN, Utah — Three people are in jail facing felony assault charges, and police are searching for a fourth suspect after a group of disruptive patrons assaulted several employees at a bar in Ogden.

According to the Ogden Police Department, the assault occurred June 5 around 1:20 a.m. at the Historic Place bar, 162 25th Street in Ogden.

A group of five was asked to leave the bar after causing a disturbance, but as they left they took their drinks with them. Three bar employees followed the group to ask them to leave the drinks inside, at which point four of the members of the group assaulted the employees.

Three employees were assaulted, and police said the most seriously injured employee suffered a fractured skull, a broken cheek bone and a broken nose after the employee was kicked and stomped on while laying on the ground.

Detectives pursuing leads responded to the 2900 Block of Porter Avenue in Ogden Wednesday, where three suspects were arrested. The suspects are Armando Gonzales, Sofia Serrano and Sonia Serrano. All three were booked into jail on charges of aggravated assault as a felony and disorderly conduct.
