On Friday, April 15, 2016, shortly before 3 a.m., York Police officers responded to a report of a disturbance in a bar located in the area of Highway 7 and East Beaver Creek Road. When officers arrived they located several people suffering from injuries as a result of a fight that began inside the bar and spilled out into the parking lot. One of the injured people, a 22-year-old woman, was taken to hospital with serious injuries.

Since the incident took place, investigators have been able to determine that a fight broke out between two groups of people who were inside the bar. As the altercation continued outside, a man struck the female victim’s face which resulted in her falling face-first to the ground. A short time later the same man struck the female victim a second time. The suspect left the area prior to police arrival.
