Man beaten with pipe in Newton

Surrey RCMP seeking witnesses to altercation in 14100-block of 75 Avenue on Wednesday.

Surrey RCMP is appealing for additional witnesses to an incident that occurred in the 14100-block of 75 Avenue at approximately 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 13.

A witness observed a white male walking eastbound in the area. A vehicle pulled up beside the male and three occupants exited the vehicle and engaged in a verbal altercation with him. During the exchange, one of the three suspects produced a pipe and proceeded to hit the male several times while he was on the ground.

When the witness went inside to call police, all four persons and the vehicle left the area.

The victim is described as a white male in his early 20s with short, dark hair, sideburns and earrings. He was wearing baggy shorts and a hoodie.

The suspects are described as white males in their late teens to early 20s. The male who assaulted the victim had shaved blond hair and was wearing jeans shorts and a grey t-shirt.

The vehicle is described as an older grey four-door sedan. It is unknown at this time if the victim left by himself or if he was taken by the suspects.

“Until proven otherwise and for obvious safety reasons, we are assuming this to be a serious incident,” said Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet. “We ask anyone who might have witnessed this incident or have any information to call the police immediately.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvecrime.ca
