Hamilton Police are seeking the public’s help in identifying two men believed to have been involved in a motor vehicle collision and assault on James Street South in early November.

On Thursday, November 5, 2020, shortly after 6:00 p.m., police say a 34-year-old Hamilton man was involved in a minor motor vehicle collision with a black Mercedes Benz sedan in the area of James Street South and Charlton Avenue.

Both vehicles pulled off the roadway to exchange information. The driver and passenger of the Mercedes exited the vehicle and a conversation ensued between them and the victim.
