The incident, which took place when 30 people were dining in the establishment, sent 15 people to hospital.
In a press release earlier this week, Supt. Rob Ryan said that while original reports of the suspects indicated they were both men, investigators now believe at least one of the suspects may be a woman.

The second suspect is described as approximately 5’10” to 6 feet tall with a medium build. This suspect was wearing blue jeans, a dark coloured hoodie pulled over head and the face was covered with dark material.
The suspects immediately fled eastbound on foot.
