Manitoba RCMP are reaching out to the public for information after a man was found behind a Mafeking, Man., business in rough shape in what police are calling a “brutal” assault.
Police said they were called to Mafeking around 2 p.m. Thursday, with a report of a man suffering from exposure. They found the victim, a 28-year-old Swan River man, had been tied up, severely assaulted and left out in the elements.
