Windsor police are looking for four suspects wanted in connection to what they've called a targeted and "callous" assault in downtown Windsor.
Investigators say a fight broke out around 3 a.m. Saturday on Chatham Street West. During the altercation, a group of individuals chased a 26-year-old man to the intersection of Pelissier Street and University Avenue. The victim was slammed to the ground and repeatedly kicked and punched.
"It's cowardice. To kick an unconscious human being on the ground is just completely cowardice and callous. It's just something we're not going to tolerate in our city core," said Staff Sergeant Dave Tennent.
The victim was taken to the hospital and is still in critical condition.
"We believe that this incident was targeted. We don't think that this incident was a random act of violence so there is some background. We don't know exactly what the motive is right now until we get all of the information," said Tennent.
Police received CCTV footage of the incident from nearby businesses and traffic cameras.
