Peel police are asking for the public’s help in identifying four men on dirt bikes after they allegedly attacked a man running on a trail in Mississauga.
According to the Peel Regional Police, on July 21, the victim was running on a trail at the Meadowvale Conservation Area in Mississauga, in the Old Derry Road and Second Line West area.
Four men on dirt bikes allegedly came up behind the victim and yelled for him to move off the trail.
