Police have released video showing several suspects who may be involved in assaulting and robbing a decorated Marine veteran at a Washington, D.C., McDonald's last week.

Former Sgt. Christopher Marquez, who earned a Bronze Star with combat "V" in Iraq and helped carry then-1st Sgt. Bradley Kasal out of Fallujah’s “Hell House,” was mugged by several people Feb. 12 in Washington's Chinatown neighborhood. 

Newly released surveillance footage from the McDonalds shows a black male wearing a tank top hitting Marquez in the head as he leaves the restaurant. .

Identified as Person of Interest 1, he and at least one other person can be seen kicking Marquez while the Marine vet is on the ground after people have gone through his pants pockets for valuables. 

Police are also looking for a black female identified as Person of Interest 2 and another person identified as Person of Interest 3, whose gender cannot be determined from the surveillance video.
