Edmonton Police Seeks Public Help to Find Suspects in Vicious Beating

Edmonton police are searching for suspects responsible for cruelly beating a 17-year-old male almost a couple weeks ago, leaving him in and out of consciousness and unable to speak since. According to the police, the incident took place at around 9:27 p.m. on Sept. 28, when the teen was spotted by some residents at a local senior citizens home in the Griesbach area of north Edmonton.

According to the witnesses’ reports, the teen was assaulted by three men who fled the area in a car parked behind the adjacent strip mall at 153 Avenue and Castle Downs Road. Upon its arrival, police found the semi-conscious teen lying in the parking lot behind a large condo complex on McCrae Avenue and Castle Downs Road. Thereafter, he was quickly shifted to a nearby hospital with life-threatening injuries to his head and placed in an induced coma for a week.

City police acting Sgt., Lawrence Avery, explained that although the teen came out of the coma, it took him additionally six days to actually wake up. Whereas, he has been in and out of consciousness since then and so hasn’t been able to say anything at all. Confirming that the teen has no history with police, Avery explained that “we were really hoping that he would regain consciousness and be able to speak to us. We thought it was better to speak directly to him first but his condition has continued to deteriorate. He’s just not been in any condition to speak to us.”
