VPD seeks witnesses to road rage

 

Vancouver Police need help to solve a road rage incident that left a Vancouver man with serious injuries last spring.

Around 2 a.m. on May 31, a 38-year-old man was stopped for a traffic light at Kingsway and Fraser Street when he allegedly encountered an aggressive driver in a white, newer-model Jeep. When the man got out to confront the Jeep driver, a dark four-door sedan pulled up alongside. The man was then assaulted in the roadway before the two cars sped away eastbound on Kingsway.

The victim was taken to hospital for surgery, and is now recovering.

Despite a lengthy and ongoing investigation, VPD has been unable to identify the drivers of the Jeep or the sedan, and are now appealing to anybody with information to come forward.

The driver of the Jeep was white, 35-40 years old, and wearing a white t-shirt. He was with a South Asian female, also 35-40 years old, who was holding an infant child in the back seat.

The driver of the sedan was South Asian, 35-40 years old, and was alone in the vehicle.

Anyone with information is asked to contact VPD at 604-717-2541, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
