Vancouver Police Seek Help Finding Suspects in 'Life-Changing' Assault

Vancouver Police have appealed for help in identifying the suspects in a violent assault almost a year ago, in the early hours of March 31, 2018, in Yaletown, which they said left a man unconscious and with “life-changing injuries.”

Security footage released by police shows several people outside Pierre’s Champagne Lounge on Hamilton Street. In the foreground, a man in a plaid shirt is seen talking to two other men, both wearing baseball caps. One of those two men then punches the man in the plaid shirt twice, knocking him to the ground where he lay unconscious. A third man then stands over the unconscious man, appearing to gesticulate and shout at him aggressively.

Police said that when offices arrived, the suspects had fled. Two victims were located, including one with minor injuries. The other victim, a 28-year-old man from Burnaby, sustained “serious” and “life-changing” head injuries, police said.

Police described it as a “serious, disturbing assault” and said the victim “continues to deal with the effects of his life-changing injuries.” Credit: Vancouver Police via Storyful
