Man injuried after vicious assault in St. Catharines
Niagara Regional Police are looking for suspects following a viscious attack in St. Catharines.
Cops arrived at a parking lot on Ontario Street at around 4:30 Sunday morning after an assault was reported, and found a man suffering from serious injuries to his face.
He was treated at the scene and later released from hospital.
Police say a group of unknown suspects, possibly armed with weapons confronted the victim and his friends in the parking lot.
At this point, investigators do not believe this was a random act, and possibly link it to another assault that happened earlier in the downtown area.
Police continue the investigation and are asking any witnesses or anyone with information to give police or CrimeStoppers a call.
