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.
