Following up Monday morning, Taylor said there was not much serious crime to report in the A-Day aftermath but said TPD did recover a few firearms this weekend and that they are investigating the assault of two tow truckers who were allegedly attacked Saturday night.

Taylor said two tow truckers were hitching up a car parked on Grace Street on the Strip when an individual believed to own the vehicle returned to the scene with others and confronted then attacked them.

She said both truck drivers were struck on the head and both were hospitalized in the wake of the attack.

Taylor said no arrests have been made yet in connection to the case, but may soon follow.
