GREER, S.C. -

Spartanburg County deputies say they got a call of a restaurant owner assaulted outside of his restaurant on Tuesday night.

Deputies say they got the call just before 11 pm Tuesday at the Twin Palmetto Fine Foods on 2245 Highway 101 in Greer.

They say the owner was closing his restaurant when two of his employees told him two men locked themselves in the men's bathroom and two vehicles were still in the parking lot.

Deputies say there was a blue Toyota 4 Runner with a South Carolina tag and a green Dodge pickup with a Michigan tag.

When the owner went to take pictures of the two vehicles license plates because of recent break-ins there, a man who owned of one of the vehicles came towards the owner in what deputies say was a threatening manner.

Deputies say when the owner attempted to walk away, the man punched him in the face, ripped his shirt and threw him to the ground before hitting him numerous times.

The owner tells deputies one of his employees pulled the man off of him.  They say both of those men got in their vehicles and drove off.

The owner was taken to Village Hospital.  Deputies say the owner had a cut on his right elbow, swelling on both sides of his face, a minor dislocation of the shoulder.

If you have any information on what happened, give the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office a call.
