Winnipeg police are investigating an assault that occurred on the 1200 block of Court Avenue in the Leila North neighbourhood early Sunday morning.
A duty officer said a man was taken to hospital in critical condition after police arrived on scene at about 3:40 a.m. on Aug. 6. Police didn't provide any updates on the victim's condition, and said no information about the suspects was available for the public.
A stretch of road near where the assault is believed to have happened was still cordoned off Monday morning as forensic identification specialists attempted to identify any information vital to the investigation.
The duty officer said the area being closed off is part of the standard investigative process — a way to ensure the integrity of the crime scene is maintained and not compromised.
