A targeted assault at a South Surrey home ended with one man taken to hospital with a broken hand.

Cpl. Bert Paquet said the baseball-bat attack was reported by the 27-year-old victim’s girlfriend at 6:20 p.m. Dec. 18.

It occurred at a home in the 16500-block of 24 Avenue.

Paquet said there were three alleged assailants, although the degree of each one’s involvement in the incident has not been clarified.

The attackers are known to the victim, and all four men are known to police, he said.

Paquet said police have located and spoken with one of the accused so far and charges are anticipated.

However, “it’s too early to say at this point who will be charged with what.”

As of Peace Arch News‘ deadline Friday, no arrests had been made.

“We’re satisfied it was a targeted assault and that the general public is not at risk,” Paquet said.
