Nova Scotia swarming sends man to hospital; investigation continues Add to ...

RCMP are investigating after a man was sent to the hospital early Sunday following an alleged swarming in Nova Scotia.

The Mounties say a group of up to 20 men in their late teens to early 20s punched and kicked a group of three men and two women, also in their early 20s, in Dartmouth.

Police are describing it as an unprovoked attack by a random group of people.

The attackers allegedly stole a backpack from one of the women, which was later recovered by a police K-9 unit.

One of the men who was attacked went to hospital with minor injuries and was released after being checked for a concussion.

The investigation is ongoing, though RCMP say there were no eyewitnesses and only vague descriptions of the suspects.
