    Police are searching for two suspects accused of attacking two men outside a bar in West Chester, Pennsylvania.

    Kyle Leitham, 24, told NBC10 he was celebrating his brother's 21st birthday with a group of friends at the Landmark Americana Bar on W. Gay Street back on May 6 around 12:10 a.m. While outside the bar, Leitham says he and his friend accidentally bumped into two other men. The suspects then attacked them.

    "The way they started swinging for no reason, it seemed like they were looking for a fight," Leitham said.

    Leitham was knocked unconscious after one of the suspects punched him, causing him to fall and hit his head on the curb. He also said his friend’s jaw was broken and it had to be wired shut after the attack.

    "It happened all of a sudden and I just didn't even see it coming," Leitham said. "I just got knocked out."

    Leitham had four staples in his head which were removed Monday. He's still feeling the after effects of his injury.

    "Every now and then I'll feel it. I'll get like, a headache," he said. "It's sometimes hard to keep reading on the computer screen, it like hurts your eyes."

    Police released surveillance photos of the two suspects. If you have any information on their identities, please call West Chester detectives at 610-696-2700.
