The owner, 56-year-old Ying Ngov, told NBC10 she was working at her business that night when she spotted the three young men looking into the pizza shop.
Two of the suspects went inside and stole a 12-pack and six-pack of beer, police said.
Ngov said she confronted the men who then surrounded her outside the shop. Surveillance video captured the men pushing her into a pile of snow and then onto the sidewalk.
The men then attack Ngov while she’s on the ground. The video shows a man trying to restrain one of the attackers. But no one checks on Ngov. The suspects then flee the scene.
Ngov told NBC10 she suffered bruising on her face.
“I just want them to be nice to everybody else,” Ngov said. “Don’t hurt the people like that.”
The Cassidy brothers are from Aston, Pennsylvania, while Croson is from Seven Valleys, Pennsylvania. If you have any information on their whereabouts, please call Detective CJ Leeds at 610-270-1476 or email NPDTips@norristown.org.
