That didn`t take very long: pier records its first assault.

By Staff

BURLINGTON, ON. June 26, 2013.  Shortly after midnight , last night, a group of friends were visiting the Burlington Pier when they started conversing with another group of males.

Without warning, the group of males grabbed one of the men and one of them struck him in the head with a bottle.

The group then ran off, pursued by one of the victim’s friends.  Police were notified and located the accused near the intersection of Burlington Avenue and Lakeshore Road.

The accused was arrested and held for a bail hearing.

ACCUSED:  Mohammed ISSE, 31 yrs, of Brampton

 CHARGES:  Assault Cause Bodily Harm and Assault with a Weapon 

 The victim, an 18-year-old Stoney Creek youth, was taken to Joseph Brant Memorial Hospital, treated for a head wound and released.

The public has taken to the pier – trey love the place. Others that don’t have a lot of love in their hearts throw bottles at one another – let’s beef up the security.

The pier has been open for less than two weeks – clearly it’s become the place to be for people from Stoney Creek.   Is it a safe place to be?  Of course it is – but some security presence wouldn’t hurt and video surveillance might be a good idea as well.

    How long will it be before some drunk decides to jump off the end of the Pier…..I guess we will just add it to the long list of law suits that are already in place…Once again lack of vision – no security and no video surveillance.
