A brawl outside a Whyte Avenue bar has left a man paralyzed and police searching for four people in connection with the attack.

Police said at around 2:30 a.m. on July 11, two men were attacked outside H20 Lounge on 82 Avenue and 100 Street.

“We’re left with relying on the public to help us out,” Edmonton Police Services Det. Calvin Mah said. “We don’t have a clue for who is responsible for this.”

One man was knocked backwards against a short cement retaining wall, causing a serious spinal cord injury and rendering him paralyzed.

“It was a sudden and abrupt attack,” Mah said.

The suspects are described as three native men and one native woman, all in their early to late 20s. They were driving a black SUV at the time of the attack.

Mah said while he doesn’t believe the intent of the attack was to cause the degree of injuries sustained, he said there is a serious obligation to find those responsible.

“His mother is an elderly female now forced to look after him,” Mah said. “Certainly she and the victim are deserving of justice.”
