Vancouver police are asking the public for help identifying two people connected to the serious assault of man in a wheelchair earlier this month.
According to police, a 44-year-old Vancouver resident was left with serious injuries after being attacked in the underground parking lot of an apartment building on Cecil Street near Kingsway on July 4.
On Wednesday, police released images of two people captured on a CCTV camera near the scene of the assault. The pair have not been named as suspects, but VPD investigators believe they may have useful information about the incident nevertheless.
“The VPD believes the two individuals in the photos, a man and a woman, may have information about this assault. We are hopeful that the public can assist us in identifying the pair,” said Sgt. Jason Robillard.
While the images are grainy, the male in the photo is believed to be a white man with a slim build and blonde hair. He was wearing a denim jacket, a shirt with a large “O” on the front, black shorts, black flip flops, and a black baseball hat. The woman, also believed to be Caucasian, has a medium build and orange or blonde hair. She was wearing a black, cropped top, a red jacket, green camouflage-print capri pants, and sandals.
Anyone who may recognize the couple in the photos is asked to call the VPD.
