Langley RCMP is seeking public assistance with their investigation into a vicious attack on a man in Langley City who tried to prevent a robbery.
On Saturday, Oct. 18, just after 3 a.m., police were called to the area of the 7-Eleven convenience store in the 20200 block of 56 Avenue. Police believe the two attackers, using a handgun, were in the process of robbing a female when they were interrupted by a male.
At that point, one of the suspects pointed a firearm at the man’s head. His partner in crime went to a vehicle and returned with a hammer which he 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.
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.
