Red Deer City RCMP are looking for suspects who wore Halloween-type masks when they attacked a 16-year-old male Friday evening.

City RCMP responded to a complaint of an assault after the 16-year-old Red Deer youth had been taken to Red Deer Regional Hospital by his family for treatment of undisclosed injuries.

Further investigation revealed that between 8 and 9 p.m. Friday , the youth had met up with friends at a green space, located below the northbound Gaetz Avenue bridge, just north of 55th Street. While
