Crime for Today: January 15

Man Beaten And Dumped From Speeding Car Along Highway

A terrible crime appears to have launched what was supposed to be a quiet holiday weekend in the city. Police and paramedics were called to Highway 400 north of Sheppard just after 7:30pm Friday, after receiving reports of a badly beaten victim on the roadway.

It appears a man in his 20s may have been deliberately dumped from a passing car while it was still moving. He remains in hospital in serious condition but his injuries aren't considered life threatening. It's not clear if he's been able to tell police what happened to him or who may have inflicted his wounds.

Cops are looking for a silver SUV that was seen speeding away from the scene at Highway 400.
