Hamilton police are looking for a suspect — believed to be a teenage boy — in connection with an assault in Gage Park.
Investigators say a suspect described as a male youth attacked a man who was exercising in the northwest corner of the park at about 7 p.m. Thursday.
The victim told police that the suspect approached and asked him to turn over some personal property.
When nothing was handed over, the suspect then assaulted the man with some sort of weapon before fleeing the area.
The victim was treated in hospital for what is described as a minor, upper-body injury.
Police are canvassing for witnesses and describe the suspect as male, 13 to 16 years old, wearing a black hoodie and a black face mask.
Detectives from the East End Station Criminal Investigation Branch are asking anyone who was in the area at the time, or has information, to contact Hamilton police.
