Comox Valley RCMP are seeking the public’s help in locating three young males who violently assaulted and robbed a 20-year-old man in East Courtenay.
On March 27 at approximately 11 p.m., the 20-year-old was attacked by a group of young males while walking through Hobson Park, says Const. Dean Biollo of the Comox Valley RCMP’s serious crimes unit.
