Mother’s Day dustup at Christie

, Hamilton Spectator

Hamilton police believe two errant dogs caused a punchup between two groups of men at Christie Conservation Area on Mother’s Day.

It started when one older man and his mid-20s son went fishing, with their two dogs, at the conservation area Sunday evening around 6:30.

The dogs were not on leashes and ran out in front of two cyclists, an older man with a younger companion.

Words were exchanged. The cyclists dismounted and the younger rider belted the older fisherman in the face.

The two got back on their bikes and the younger cyclist damaged the fishermen’s vehicle before they rode away.

The man who was punched was treated for minor injuries in hospital and released.

Police are looking for a white, 20-something male with short hair who wore a hoodie and sweatpants. His older companion is said to be about 50 years old, about five-foot-six inches tall, who has a beard and gray and white hair.
