A man is in critical condition in hospital after being badly beaten and left bleeding in a parked minivan on a residential street in Green Timbers.

Surrey RCMP say the 55-year-old aggravated assault victim was unconscious with significant head trauma when he was found in the vehicle at 12:30 p.m. Thursday (Dec. 29) in the 9500 block of 139 Street.

Police say the man was known to them for minor criminal matters, some drug-related, but could not say if the attack was gang-related.

“We don’t know how he obtained those injuries yet,” added Cpl. Drew Grainger.

Investigators with the serious crime unit are canvassing neighbours for information.

Anyone who can help is urged to call Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or visit their website at Solvecrime.ca.
