Surrey RCMP seek witnesses in April 2013 aggravated assault investigation


 Suspect 1

THE Surrey RCMP are requesting the public’s assistance in identifying four subjects involved in a serious aggravated assault which occurred over a year ago.

On April 28, 2013, just after 1:30 a.m., RCMP officers responded to a report of assault at the Secret Resto Lounge near Scott Road and 72nd Avenue in Surrey.

The victim, a 39 year old Surrey resident, suffered several serious injuries including multiple deep lacerations, contusions and a depressed skull fracture which required surgery. The same suspects also attempted to assault an employee of the establishment; however, he was able to avoid the attacks.

“Indications are that the victim might have been trying to break up a fight, which attracted the attention of the suspects who assaulted him,” says Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet. “Although this investigation has progressed significantly since the attack, our investigators are looking for additional information that will assist them in bringing this matter to court.”

Surrey RCMP’s Major Crimes Section is currently investigating. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, stating file number 2013-51682 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
