Three men were injured early Saturday in an attack outside the gay nightclub Complex on the fringes of downtown St. Louis.
The victims say they were leaving the club when a group of four men departing an adjoining bar picked a fight.

alone, we're fine. From there, the one kid didn't like what we told
them and decided to punch me in the eye and I fell to the ground. And
at that time my friend was laying on the ground and they started
kicking him in the face."
Piwowarczyk suffered a mild concussion,
bruises and received six stitches above his eye from the attack. One of
his friends suffered a broken nose; the other a fractured cheek bone.
Police say they're investigating the incident and are looking for a black SUV with Illinois plates.
