We are asking the public for information in relation to a serious assault that occurred two weeks ago in the southwest where several youths were assaulted, threatened with firearms and robbed.

On Tuesday, July 14, 2020, at approximately 9:30 p.m., a group of youths gathered in Griffith Woods Park, located near the Discovery Ridge Community Association.

An altercation occurred between the group of youths and a second group of approximately 20 males believed to be in their late teens or early 20s.
