EAST WINDSOR, CT (WFSB) -

East Windsor Police are searching for a man and woman who allegedly assaulted two people at a Walmart parking lot early Thursday morning.

Officers responded to the assault at the Walmart parking lot, at 44 Prospect St., around 2 a.m. Upon arrival, officers said they found a man and woman, who claimed they were "pistol whipped" by a couple.

The assault occurred as a result of an argument between the two couples. Police said they did not know each other before the incident occurred on Thursday.

The suspects fled the scene in a black Toyota four-door sedan and police believe the suspects may be armed.

Police encourage anyone who may be able to identify the two suspects in the surveillance photos or the vehicle that was involved to contact the East Windsor Police Department at 860-292-8240 .
