He was taken to a Toronto-area trauma centre where he is being treated for serious but not life-threatening injuries.

At this time there is no description available for the suspect or suspects; however, police are appealing for any witnesses to come forward or for anyone that has any cellphone or video footage to contact investigators.

The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with new information about this incident is asked to contact Det. Hawkes of the West Criminal Investigations Bureau at 1-888-579-1520 ext. 2528.

Anonymous information can be sent to Durham Regional Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or online at www.durhamregionalcrimestoppers.ca and tipsters may be eligible for a $2,000 cash reward.
