UPDATED: Suspects sought in hit and run

A hit and run left a Langley man in the hospital Friday night, and local Mounties are now asking more witnesses to step forward.

Police were called just before midnight to Gabby’s Country Cabaret on Fraser Highway, where a man had been run over in the parking lot on the nightclub’s north side.

The 55-year-old man, on foot, had been hit by a gold 2003 Ford F350. He apparently suffered injuries to his legs, but is expected to survive.

The victim had apparently been in some kind of physical fight with the occupants of the truck just before he was hit, said Cpl. Holly Marks, a spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.

Police said there were believed to have been four men in the truck, all of whom were behaving aggressively, starting fights, and throwing beer cans from the vehicle.

After the hit and run, the truck left the scene, and was later found in a parking lot in Fort Langley.

It has been seized by police and is being examined by the Lower Mainland Forestinc Identification Services. Police have also identified the registered owner of the vehicle, said Marks.

The RCMP released descriptions of three suspects, all Caucasian men in their late 20s.

The first is 5’9” and was wearing dress jeans and a white golf shirt. The second was 5’7”, about 160 to 170 pounds, wearing beige rugby pants, and white checkered dress shirt, and a “Michael Jackson” style hat. The third is 5’7”, about 160 pounds, and has dark hair, a peach fuzz beard and moustache, and was wearing blue jeans and a black T-shirt.

Anyone who saw the incident or related incidents that night, and who has not spoken to police, can call the RCMP at 604-532-3200, or to remain anonymous, call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
