Hammer attacker is still at large

The Langley RCMP is hoping a composite drawing will help find the men involved in a vicious beating of a robbery witness last month.

Police released the sketch this week of one of the two suspects in the Oct. 18 attack at the Langley City 7-Eleven. At about 3 a.m. Oct. 18, police were called to the 20200 block of 56th Avenue.

“Police believe the two attackers were in the process of robbing a female with a handgun when they were interrupted by a male,” said Langley RCMP Cpl. Holly Marks.

One suspect pointed a firearm at the man’s head. Another man went to a vehicle and returned with a hammer which he used to hit the victim in the head while kicking him.

“The victim lost consciousness for a moment and when he awoke, his attacker continued to hit him with the hammer and kick him on the ground,” Marks added.

The two males ran to a newer silver car, possibly a Hyundai or a Toyota four-door, and fled.

“It is possible the vehicle had after market, newer style cuts in the fender,” she said.

One suspect is described as a male, mid to late 20s, possibly of Filipino descent. He stands about 6’1” tall and is at about 200 lbs. has an athletic build, a bald/shaved head and a script tattoo on his neck. He had black clothing, dress shoes, dress pants and a man purse.

The other male is Caucasian, 5’10” tall, mid to late 20s, skinny, scrubby looking, wearing a hat and a white and red hoodie.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200. To remain anonymous, contact CrimeStoppers: talk: 1-800-222-TIPS (8477); type: www.solvecrime.ca; text: BCTIP and your message to CRIMES (274637); or Facebook: www.facebook.com/metrovancouvercrimestoppers.
