A video showing a young man being attacked by a group of assailants in Port Colborne is now in the hands of police.

A local TV station reporting the video shows a young man being punched and kicked by a group of five people in front of the 7 Eleven on Clarence Street.

Police tell the media outlet they believe the incident happened in the early morning hours of August 26th.
