Oceanside RCMP is looking for witnesses after an assault in Parksville Community Park on Aug. 3.

Police responded shortly after 11 p.m. to the park’s playground area and found a man had been in an altercation with several youths, according to Sgt. Stephen Rose.

“One of the youths, who was described as approximately 17 years old and tall, allegedly struck the male victim in the head with a baton. Several other teens reportedly hit and kicked the victim before fleeing in several vehicles,” he said.

An ambulance responded, but the victim was not taken to hospital, according to Rose. Police are collecting video surveillance of the area and are asking anyone with information about the suspects or anyone who may have witnessed the incident to contact RCMP.
