The VPD is asking the public’s help in identifying 3 suspects who assaulted and robbed a 69-year-old man in broad daylight along the 2900 block of West Broadway.

From The Province:

At around noon on Aug. 17, a 69-year-old man was walking between Balaclava and Bayswater streets, when two men in their 20s approached him with a gun and forced him into a new-model black crew-cab pickup.

A woman in her 20s drove the vehicle several blocks to a lane near the 2700 block of West 13th Ave. The man was pushed out of the truck and robbed of his wallet. He was pepper sprayed in the face and struck in the head with a metal pipe.

Descriptions of the suspects have been released: one white male, weighing 200 lbs and 6′ tall with short blond hair; one dark-skinned male, 5’10”, slim with short black hair; and a white female driver with blond hair in a ponytail.

Anybody with information pertaining to this case is asked to call the VPD at 604-717-3492 or Crime Stoppers 1-200-222-8477.
