Investigation revealed that on Dec. 9, at approximately 4:10 a.m., a male victim in his twenties was walking in the area of the Pen Financial building located in the area of East Main Street and Burger Street, in Welland. At this time, the victim was approached by a male in his twenties who spoke briefly with the victim and then began attacking him without any provocation. The male was subsequently joined by two additional males and all three began punching and kicking the victim, who fell to the sidewalk suffering from serious injuries.
