The teenagers allegedly robbed Mama Venezia's Pizzeria, located on the 600 block of North Marshall Street, on Feb. 19. Two of the suspects had stolen a 12-pack and 6-pack of beer, police said.
The teenagers were spotted leaving the business by 56-year-old owner Ying Ngov, police said.
When she confronted them about the alleged theft, she was shoved into a pile of snow, as seen in surveillance video from the incident. When Ngov got up and approached the suspects again, she was pummeled until another man tried to restrain one of the suspects.
Ngov, a Chinese immigrant, told 6ABC last week that she was struggling to eat because of the injuries she suffered.

The grown men push her to the ground and beat her. The security video is after the interview. More @ 11 @6abc pic.twitter.com/7zDrOqLmar— Bob Brooks (@BobBrooks6abc) February 25, 2021
