Toronto police are seeking the public’s help after a group of men brutally attacked a 27-year-old man after they were kicked out of a downtown pub last month.
Two groups of men were removed from the bar, near Madison Ave. and Bloor St. W., at 2:15 a.m. on Sept. 23 following an altercation over a “spilt drink,” according to police.
One group followed the victim and his friends to a nearby parking lot where one suspect stabbed him with a knife while the others punched and kicked him in the head repeatedly.
Another suspect hit the victim with what police call a large boulder while he was still lying on the ground.
The victim lost consciousness and sustained life-threatening injuries.
A friend of the victim was also assaulted and sustained minor injuries.
Police released security camera photos of the suspects Monday as part of their attempted murder investigation.
Police are asking anyone with information regarding the case to contact investigators at 416-808-5300 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477).
