The Langley RCMP is looking to hear from anyone with information about a vicious downtown attack that left a man with a serious skull fracture.
At about 3 a.m. on Oct. 18 the police were called to the 7-Eleven store in the 20200 block of 56th Avenue.
â€œPolice believe the two attackers were in the process of robbing a female with a handgun when they were interrupted by a male,â€ said Langley RCMP Cpl. Holly Marks.
One of the suspects pointed a firearm at the manâ€™s head. Another man went to a vehicle and returned with a hammer which he then used to hit the victim in the head, kicking him at the same time.
â€œThe 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,â€ Marks added.
The two males ran to a newer silver car, possibly a Hyundai or a Toyota four-door, and fled.
â€œIt is possible the vehicle had after market, newer style cuts in the fender,â€ she said.
One suspect is described as a male, mid to late 20s, possibly of Philippine descent with a medium skin complexion. He stands about 6â€™1â€ tall and is at about 200 lbs. has an athletic build, a bald/shaved head and a script tattoo on his neck. He was wearing black clothing, dress shoes, dress pants and a man purse.
The other male is described as Caucasian, 5â€™10â€ tall, mid to late 20s, skinny, scrubby looking, wearing a hat and a white and red hoodie.
Marks said the police would welcome hearing from anyone with information on this crime.
