The man, who is described as Asian with short dark hair and a short, slim build, was sent to hospital and remains in critical condition.

Police did not provide any further details of the incident.

“The evidence collected so far has led detectives to believe that the injuries sustained by the man were the result of an assault,” said Sgt. Jason Robillard.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police.
