A 28-year-old man remains in hospital with serious injuries after he was reportedly assaulted close to midnight on Wednesday at an outdoor mall in Ottawa’s west end.
Investigators are seeking witnesses and urging anyone who saw the fight or the assault to contact police.
“Anyone would’ve been in that area between 11:30 p.m. and midnight might have information about the incident,” Ottawa Police Service spokesperson Amy Gagnon said.
Gagnon said the man wasn’t attacked with a weapon but still sustained “very serious injuries” in the fight. He is stable in hospital, she said.
