Langley City attack leaves man in hospital

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.

“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 of the suspects pointed a firearm at the man’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.

“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 Philippine descent with a medium skin complexion. 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 was wearing black clothing, dress shoes, dress pants and a man purse.

The other male is described as Caucasian, 5’10” 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.
