Kent Police are asking for the public's help in identifying two suspects who violently assaulted a woman, stole her phone and tossed it out of their car window. 

According to police, the assault occurred on June 20 in the 1000 block of Central Avenue. The victim, Kimberli Johnson, said the incident may have sparked over a dispute. 

Johnson owns a catering business. She stopped in a rented U-Haul van to pick up some new printed t-shirts for her company. When she went to leave the parking lot, the two suspects were blocking traffic in their vehicle. 

After they didn’t move, Johnson says she honked her horn and tried to go around them. That’s when she says the female suspect opened her door and threw a glass bottle at her U-Haul. Johnson heard it hit, so she stopped and got out worried there might be damage to the rented vehicle.

Johnson told FOX 13 that the woman got out of the car and chest-bumped her. She said the woman then turned to her boyfriend and said, ‘Bae, shoot this b****’. 

Johnson said she walked back to her van while on the phone with 911, but the woman followed her while yelling at her and trying to take her phone away. The man came over and started punching her repeatedly, Johnson recalled, before they stole her phone. 

"I don't know if it was the fact I honked at them. I don't know if it was the fact that when they threw something at the car, I stopped and got out of the car. I believe they were on something honestly. Her eyes were kind of dazed," Johnson said. 

The pair were caught on video, brutally beating Johnson.

Johnson needed staples to close a deep cut in her head. 

"I was kind of upset because you're telling them they are being recorded, why is nobody calling the police?  Why is nobody coming to help me?" Johnson said. 

Now, months later, Johnson she is having difficulties remembering things and hearing. 

"I'm not old, but I'm an older lady. I tend to kind of forget some things sometimes. I guess with age and stuff like that, but it's like, I really have to write stuff down now. I don't know if it had anything to do with that or triggered it, but I feel it does. My hearing [is] not all the way sharp in my left ear," Johnson told FOX 13.

Johnson's phone was recovered a short distance away from where the suspects tossed it out the window. 

The suspects drove off in a black Infiniti G-series coupe with all-black rims and an aftermarket front bumper and headlights. Police do not have a plate number. 

Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to an arrest in the case.
