A male was left lying in the road after an assault on Cowichan Way after 11 p.m. last Wednesday.

North Cowichan/Duncan received a call to assist B.C. Ambulance. The male was unable to get up.

The victim stated he was hit over the head from behind. He told police he was then held down while another male searched him and took cigarettes, cash and alcohol.

The victim suffered a broken ankle when one male stomped on it. He was taken to Cowichan District Hospital and needed immediate surgery.

Police conducted an extensive patrol of the area without locating the suspects.

The suspects, last seen running toward the black bridge, were described as First Nations males in their 20s, with slim build, dark clothing and wearing ball caps.

Police are asking for the public's assistance in identifying the suspects.
