Hamilton Police are trying to identify a male suspect involved in an assault.

Businesses or residents in the area of Maple Avenue and Kenilworth Avenue South are asked to check surveillance cameras between the hours of 8:15 p.m., and 9:00 p.m., on Friday, October 26, 2019.

Last Friday, shortly before 9:00 p.m., a man was driving eastbound on Maple Avenue in Hamilton stopped his car at the Kenilworth Avenue South intersection.

While stopped, an unknown man crossed the intersection and threw something at the vehicle causing a loud thud to be heard.

The driver exited his car to examine for damages and made a comment to the man. The remark sparked a reaction from the suspect to walk over and repeatedly assault the driver, causing injuries to his face.

Bystanders in the area came to the driver’s aid. The suspect was last seen running southbound on Kenilworth Avenue South.

The suspect is described as being 20 to 30 years old, standing approximately six-feet tall, and at the time of the incident, he was wearing a grey jacket, navy blue jeans and a yellow and black Tiger-Cats scarf around his neck.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Patrol Staff Sergeant, Division 20 at (905)546-2929.
