Duluth Police continue to investigate assault at Rustic Bar

Duluth Police shared an update about an incident at the Rustic Bar from last week. They said this stems from a call around 12:15 AM on Wednesday.

Officers responded to the 500 block of N 60th Ave W for medical assistance that occurred from an assault earlier in the day. They found a 39-year-old woman with injuries to her head and face. She was transported to a local hospital by Mayo Ambulance.

Surveillance video was requested on Thursday, and the bar owner provided it to DPD on Saturday. Investigators were called in on Saturday to review the video and continue the investigation.

The surveillance video showed two women having a conversation that turned physical. That’s when two men became involved in the confrontation and allegedly assaulted one of the women.

The two men were known to the other woman involved, and the cause of the fight is still being investigated.

Investigators spoke to additional witnesses on Monday, and have canvassed the area to gather video from surrounding establishments.

If you have any information or video to share, you’re encouraged to call the Violent Crimes Unit at (218)-730- 5050.
