OPP are still searching for one suspect after a violent robbery in Leamington.

Police say it took place Sunday night at an apartment complex in the 100 block of Talbot Road East.

Police arrived on scene and found that two Leamington men, both known to police, had assaulted and robbed a 20-year-old Toronto man staying inside one of the apartments.
