ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

Police are searching for four suspects who assaulted four Syrian refugee teenagers Wednesday afternoon. 

The teens, ranging from ages 13-15, were outside the 1100 block of Hodiamont Avenue when four suspects approached them, wanting to fight. 

Then, police said the suspects kicked and punched the victims before fleeing the scene of the assault. The suspects fled the scene on-foot in an unknown direction. 

Only one of the victims was transported to the hospital: a 13 year-old male who complained of pain in his leg. All of the victims sustained minor injuries. 

Police said the victims did not provide further descriptions of the suspects, due to a language barrier. 

The investigation into the incident is ongoing.
