VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) — The Vancouver Police Department is looking to speak with two cyclists who confronted the suspects of an assault in East Vancouver last month.
A 51-year-old man was assaulted at around 9 p.m. outside his home near Franklin and Slocan streets on April 22.
The witnesses stopped on their bikes to confront the suspects, according to police.
“We believe that they have information about what happened,” Sgt. Aaron Roed said the suspects.
The victim sustained serious injuries, he added.
Weapons were used in the assault, but police are not releasing information about them.
“We’re not releasing any information regarding the type of weapons used as this would be part of our investigative needs at this time,” Roed said.
