He is 26 years of age, and originally from Winnipeg, but has lived in Thunder Bay for the past eight years.

Family and friends are very concerned for the health of their friend.

Sources tell NetNewsledger that the alleged attack happened on Brodie Street South near where the old transit terminal was located. Apparently two attackers came at the man with crowbars. The attack happened in the early morning hours Friday night or Saturday morning.

Apparently the streetlight in the area was not on. This made it difficult for witnesses to see the attackers.
