Man swarmed, beaten on Dogwood St.

Three people are facing charges after a man was swarmed and assaulted on Dogwood Street.

RCMP say a man in his 20s was walking in the 200 block, around 7 p.m. on Friday, when he was approached by four young people.

Someone asked him where his cigarettes were and then he was swarmed. The culprits pulled his jacket over his head and began throwing punches. The man suffered a facial injury but managed to escape and called 911. Several officers responded to the call and tracked down the suspects.

A 21-year-old man, a 19-year-old female and a 17-year-old male were arrested. All three are known to police and the swarming appears to be a random incident. The suspects’ names were not released pending the approval of charges by Crown counsel.
