Wood County deputies say they're searching for two people in connection to an attack over the weekend.

According to a news release, it happened just before 7:30 Sunday night on the 800 block of State Highway 73 in the Town of Saratoga.

Deputies say about 6 to 7 people arrived at the address in a silver minivan and started damaging a vehicle with baseball bats and other objects. A 17-year-old was hurt after being assaulted. Then, the suspects entered a house and started assaulting a man inside. He sustained significant injuries. The suspects then fled.

The sheriff's department says the incident may have been retaliation for a fight that had occurred in the Red Granite area between a woman and one of the suspects.

Vitana Lopez ,18, was arrested. Deputies are still looking for Gabriel Lopez, 30, and Yasmin Lopez, 37.

The two victims have been treated for their injuries and released from the hospital.

If you have any information on the location of Gabriel and Yasmin, call the Wood County Sheriff's Department at 715-421-8764.
