Police charge 2 men in downtown Calgary assault on homeless man

Calgary police have laid charges against two men in what they believe was a hate-motivated attack against a man experiencing homelessness in downtown Calgary last month.

The assault took place near the Bow Tower on March 29.

Around 11 p.m., a security guard found the victim after he’d been thrown to the ground and kicked by two men in what police have described as an unprovoked attack.

The man suffered injuries and required medical attention after he was kicked in the ribs and face. 

Police have charged Corbin Maverick Riley, 21, and John Segovia Calderon, 21, with one count each of aggravated assault. 

“Every Calgarian has the right to feel safe in our city, and violence against vulnerable members of our city will not be tolerated,” said the Calgary Police Service in a statement on Thursday.
