A man was allegedly attacked by a group of men while walking through a Northern Westchester park.

The City of Peekskill Police Department is investigating the assault that occurred on the 300 block of Walnut St at around 12:30 a.m. Sunday, March 28.

About five minutes earlier, the man was walking north through Depew Park, past the gazebo, then exited the park to northbound Walnut Street, Peekskill PD Lt. Jack Galusha said.
