A security guard was assaulted and possibly robbed while on duty at the Halifax County Rehab Centre on Bissett Road Monday night.

The security guard noticed four young men who were not supposed to be there. When he approached them, he was hit on the side of the head with a rock. When he hit the ground, he was kicked about four times in the chest. The guard dropped his cellphone and he isn’t sure if he lost it or if the assailants stole it.
