Police are looking for two suspects who allegedly assaulted a Vermont Army National Guard member at the Ethan Allen Firing Range in Jericho.

Police say 23-year-old Jordan Paquette of St. Albans was assigned to keep trespassers off the firing range while drills were taking place on Saturday when two men in dark clothing approached the post around 6 p.m.

Police say when he asked them to stop and identify themselves, they refused and assaulted him. Paquette received minor injuries.

The two men then fled toward Cemetery Road.

Anyone with information is asked to call state police.
