Gainesville Police are investigating an assault Wednesday night on a man under the Queen City Parkway bridge.

Sgt. Kevin Holbrook said officers initially received a call out to Northeast Georgia Medical Center on an assault report. Medical staff spoke to the officers regarding Daniel Andrew Smith, 33, who had been assaulted after 8 p.m. Wednesday, police said.

“They advised that the victim had been reportedly under the Queen City bridge and was assaulted by two unknown suspects with unknown objects,” Holbrook said, adding that the suspects were possibly two black men.

At the time of the report, Smith was still in critical condition.

“He has been unable to speak with officers,” Holbrook said.

Holbrook said police believe Smith was dropped off at that location and later driven to the hospital by an acquaintance.
