Investigators are informing the public that the victim may have been involved in an altercation that occurred between 11 pm on July 19, 2021, and 1 am on July 20, 2021.

Police say they are currently looking for anyone with possible dashcam footage of an altercation in the area of Front St, Terminal Ave, Comox Road and Esplanade St.
