Police tape blocks off an area of Princess Park as the Brandon Police Service investigate following an assault on Tuesday evening.

A man has been sent to hospital in Winnipeg with serious injuries after a beating in downtown Brandon's Princess Park.

Police were called to the park just before 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, where a passerby said a man had just assaulted another man in the park.

The victim, a 44-year-old man, had been punched several times in the upper body and was found lying on the ground with injuries that police called "severe." After being taken by ambulance to the Brandon hospital, he was transferred to Winnipeg's Health Sciences Centre.

The suspect in the beating fled eastwards along Princess Avenue, and is described as being between 40–50 years old, about 5-foot-10, and aboriginal in appearance. He was wearing a dark green T-shirt.

Police say they continue to investigate.

That guy that was beaten. The police should look further then just him. Maybe the same guy gave Robby Macloed the same beating that resulted in his death. I knew Robby, he was a good guy but got in with the wrong crowd. He deserve to have his Killer brought to Justice, like Crystal Elks Killer. They should all swing from a rope..
