(CBC) A man has been attacked in Scarborough Thursday night outside of a home in Brampton. Police say a 22-year-old man was in a stolen vehicle and assaulted at 5:30 p.m. At a news conference, police spokesperson Const. Catherine Fife said police were searching for a vehicle that had recently been reported stolen at an address in the area.
Fife said the incident was not terrorism related but there may have been a connection to recent reports the car had been reported stolen in Brampton.
"The suspect has been released to police, and the investigation is on to see if that's tied to this particular incident," said Fife.
A police officer can be seen on video trying to persuade the man to turn around as he is walking past. Another video shows another police officer walking away after he says he's asked him not to do so.
When the man turns around, another man starts following him on foot. Another man tries to intervene but is told not to by a man who says he's a witness and is looking to block him.
There are also claims that someone threw a chair at the man and he was kicked and hit as he walked away. The Toronto Sun also posted a picture on their Facebook page of a smashed window and window pane.

Fife could not release a person's identity but said he had spoken to a witness who said it was someone they knew and asked them not to help the alleged suspect.
She said at about 6 p.m., police went to the home as there was a possible armed robbery going on. The home was not occupied and police decided that they were taking immediate action.
Fife said at that point, she was told that the man was arrested by another individual, who was not an officer.

It's a story of an institution that still struggles financially and, at the same time, keeps on making sure its best patrons â€” the lucky ones â€” get to enjoy the most spectacular sporting spectacle in the world.
The first thing you will notice about the CFL is its size â€” at 24 teams (up from 18 by 2009) and five in Vancouver â€” and its number of regular-season games (19) and playoff games (12).
"The game is a lot bigger than football or basketball or cricket," says Mike Gillis, executive vice-president of the Canadian Football League. "It's not just a few teams that compete for the championship, it's a collection of teams that have a good chance to have a good season."
There's a reason Gillis says there aren't a lot of new franchises and players coming to the league.
"We've got a little over $80 million dollars in capital invested in this league, $50 million (in wages and benefits) invested so our players can get paid," says Gillis. "It has a pretty incredible atmosphere of passion and energy."
The CFL is a team game. It's one you don't want to miss. Not on your birthday.
The following are 14 reasons why you should watch the inaugural season of the CFL.
1) It's the Canadian equivalent of the NBA: All 11 teams are based in British Columbia â€” Victoria and the rest of the B.C. Province. They aren't named after any team but rather teams that played at their home base.
All 11 teams are based in British Columbia â€” Victoria and the rest of the B.C. Province. They aren't named after any team but rather teams that played at their home base. There's a lot of heart between them. In 2007 when the Canadian men's soccer team was in its inaugural season, the Calgary Stampeders broke a 50-year championship drought and became only the third Canadian team ever to make it to the finals at the World Cup finals.
2) CFL commissioner Randy Ambrosie was born on Vancouver Island in 1989, has two sons and two daughters. His father, Jim, used to coach the Vancouver Stampeders as an assistant during his playing days. They attended the University of B.C. in Vancouver and later started working for the Canadian Football League.
His second son, Chris Ambrosie, was born in 1995. In 2000, the Ambrosie family moved to Calgary to pursue their hockey dreams.
3) No CFL team currently has enough playoff wins to make its own postseason, and only 16 teams actually enter the postseason each year.
