La Mesa Police are investigating the assault of a security guard at Grossmont Center, in an attack which occured late Sunday night.
The guard, who is recovering from his injuries from his attack, was reportedly on foot patrol on the second level of the parking structure at the shopping mall, when he was attacked by at least two men.
He was able to radio for help, and La Mesa police and Heartland Fire departments were called to the scene, according to 10News. When they arrived the assaillants had fled, and the guard was lying on the ground near a wall.
