Police are looking for two men who seriously injured a would-be Good Samaritan who tried to intervene in a dispute in Crystal City.

The early morning incident happened around 2 a.m. Thursday, on the block of 23rd Street S. near the 7-Eleven and the Exxon station. It reportedly involved the victim, the suspects, and a woman with whom the pair were engaged in an argument.

Despite being serious injured, the victim declined medical treatment, according to police.

More from an Arlington County Police Department crime report:

… the male victim stated that at approximately 1:40 a.m., he observed a dispute between a female subject and the two male suspects. The victim intervened, during which Suspect One struck and kicked the victim. A witness assisted the victim who was able to enter his parked vehicle. Suspect One then struck and damaged the window to the vehicle before fleeing the scene on foot. The victim sustained serious, non-life threatening injuries and declined the treatment of medics.

The suspects remain at large and “the investigation is ongoing,” ACPD said.
