A 42 year-old man was seriously injured after being assaulted in the area of William Avenue and King Street. The assault took place about 9:30pm on October 16, 2018 when the victim was walking in the area and was viciously attacked from behind by an unknown man. The victim had no idea why he was assaulted and when he tried to flag down passing vehicles to help, no one stopped until a medical supervisor arrived.
He was transported to hospital in critical condition but has since been upgraded to stable condition.
General patrol officers, a K-9 unit and Air-1 searched the area but were unable to locate a suspect.
Investigators would like to speak with anyone who may have witnessed the assault or observed the suspect before or after the assault.
