Police are investigating an assault
and robbery of a man who suffered severe facial injuries when he was attacked
by two armed men on Thursday night.
The victim’s injuries have made it
difficult for him to speak or communicate with police, to the extent that
officers are not clear on exactly where he was attacked, but they believe it
occurred at or near Grand Old House restaurant in South Sound.
Police said the victim’s car was
stolen, but he has been unable to inform them of the make or model of the
vehicle. It was also believed his wallet had been taken.
The man was taken to hospital via private vehicle. Police said the attack happened about 10pm.
Officers were not notified of the attack until the man was already at hospital.
The victim remained in hospital on
Friday afternoon, under heavy sedation.
Anyone with information is asked to
contact George Town police on 949-4222.
