And they took pictures:
Winnipeg police continue to investigate a possible case of
vigilantism in which New Year's Eve revellers are supposed to have
beaten a man who was allegedly trying to break into vehicles in St.
Police were called to Horace Street in St. Boniface just before 2 a.m. last Thursday to investigate a report of an assault.
When officers arrived, they found several men on the street,
including one man who appeared to have been assaulted, said Const.
Someone at the scene took photographs which were posted to a
Winnipeg-based website, WinnipegHeights.com. The photos, later taken
down from the site, show a bloodied man, wearing a T-shirt and jeans,
curled up on the snowy ground.
