Suspects sought in violent year-old Surrey assault
Surrey Mounties are looking for anyone who has information about a vicious assault in Newton a year ago.
On April 28, 2013, at about 1:30 a.m., RCMP responded to a report of an assault at the Secret Resto Lounge, near Scott Road and 72 Avenue.
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 four suspects (pictured) are believed to have attempted to also attack a lounge staffer, but he was able to escape.
“Indications are that the victim might have been trying to break up a fight, which attracted the attention of the suspects who assaulted him,” said 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 call 604-599-0502, stating file number 2013-51682 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
