Police spokesperson Constable Lori Murphy told The VOICE over the phone that the 22 Division Criminal Investigation Bureau is handling the case.

Murphy said: “We got a call for an assault taking place in the area of McLaughlin Road and Steeles Avenue in the City of Brampton for a group of males fighting with sticks at 10:46 p.m. on Sunday.”

She added: “As a result of that incident, we got reports of one 19-year-old male having to attend a local hospital, receiving treatment and being released shortly thereafter in relation to some minor injuries.”

She said that at this time no charges have been laid and  no one is in custody in relation to this incident.

Police are encouraging anyone who may have any further information about what had taken place there to contact the 22 Division Criminal Investigation Bureau at (905) 453–2121, ext. 2233.  Information may also be left anonymously by calling Peel Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), or by visiting www.peelcrimestoppers.ca, or by sending a text message to CRIMES (274637) with the word “PEEL” and then your tip.
