Man says mob attacked him in motel parking lot

A 26-year-old Fremont resident said he was set upon for no reason by a group of more than a dozen individuals Nov. 10 at 1:45 a.m. while walking in the parking lot of an East Dublin-Granville Road motel.

The man said the group of 15 or more males kicked and punched him repeatedly. The reporting officer noted the man had visible injuries but refused medical attention and said he would go to a hospital by himself.

The officer also said it was possible video of the attack might be available from the motel's security camera.
