Vancouver Police renew appeal for witnesses in serious assault

Vancouver Police today released new surveillance video of three people who may have information about a serious assault in the West End in late November, and area asking for the public’s help in identifying them.

The assault occurred on November 30, 2019, at 12:40 a.m. A man was walking north on the west side of Thurlow Street from Davie Street when he had a verbal altercation with a group of people and was then assaulted.

“Video obtained by investigators shows two males and one female in the area of the assault,” says Sergeant Aaron Roed, VPD. “We want to speak with these individuals. They may have valuable information that could help us and just don’t know that they do.”

The victim is dealing with life-altering injuries and is still recovering in hospital.

If anyone has information related to the assault or about the identity of the people in the video, they are encouraged to call investigators at 604-717-2541.
