LAGUNA BEACH, Calif. - A vicious fight was captured on video outside a Laguna Beach bar and authorities are hoping the public can help identify the suspects.

At least two men, and a woman who tried to help one of the victims, were assaulted in the incident.

In the video, a man is seen being chased out of a bar, and punched in the head by two different men as he tries to walk away. He falls on the ground and one of the men walks up and kicks him in the head.

In the same incident, a woman who was trying to help one of the men is seen being grabbed by the neck and thrown to the curb.

And in the aftermath of the incident, two men are seen on the ground, bloody and barely conscious as bystanders try to help them.

The incident happened Friday night outside The Saloon in Laguna Beach on South Coast Highway.

Allison Croul was the woman seen being assaulted in the video. She says she was walking by the bar with some friends when the fight spilled out into the street.

She tried to help one of the victims, when one of the men attacked her, grabbing her by the neck and throwing her to the ground.

"I was walking out and these men grabbed me and just started beating me up. It was just the most horrific thing."

Police say the incident involved two men getting into an altercation with members of a wedding party. Two suspects are wanted for questioning and police are reviewing the video.

Croul says she would do it again.

"I thought I could stand up and say this isn't right and stand up for the right thing. So that's what I did."
