The attack occurred around 12.24am Wednesday. Police said
one man was set upon by about five to seven people near the intersection of
Eastern Ave. and North Church St.

had been attacked and beaten. Nothing was taken from the man, although police
said attackers demanded cash.

The victim was escorted to hospital by police where he was
treated and later released.
