RICHMOND, Va., -- Richmond Police are searching for the people who attacked neighbors on their porch just after midnight on New Year's Day.

Detectives said the attack happened Jan. 1 at 1 a.m. along the 1800 block of Floyd Avenue in Richmond's Fan District.

Officers responded to reports of a large crowd spilling out onto Floyd Avenue and an assault.

Police found two victims who had both been assaulted with a brick, according to a police spokesperson.

Officers also found the window of a home damaged.

The victims, who didn't want to be identified, said their attackers had just left a nearby New Year's Eve Party prior to the attack.

One individual was kicked off the front porch of a neighbor's home and left.

The victims said the attackers then returned with a car full of bricks and started throwing them at their home.

Adam Hale, who lives next door to where the crime occurred, captured the aftermath on his cell phone.

"[Police] were blocking off the road so that nobody could come through, like four of five police cars," Hale recalled. "They were walking around and asking people a bunch of questions."

Richmond Police did not release a suspect description.
