“It should have been a typical Halloween, but it wasn’t. Our son, as every other kid in town, decided to go out for a fun night with his friends and hang out.  

 An hour after he left, I got a knock on the door and everything changed. We found out that when our son and his friends were walking through the parkette, they were approached and attacked by a group carrying weapons. As a result of being hit with a baton several times, our son suffered serious injuries.”

The group of suspects have been described as follows:

• Approximately 10 – 15 males;
