Chilliwack RCMP are looking for information about an assault at Cultus Lake early Wednesday morning that left a young man with head trauma and broken teeth.

At approximately 1:50 a.m. on July 23, Mounties received a call about an assault in the First Avenue area. Two males had approached a youth who was walking alone along the water’s edge.

Police say the suspect males approached the victim from behind, asked him to turn around and then punched him and took him to the ground.

“This was a very serious assault,” said RCMP spokesperson Const. Tracy Wolbeck. “There is no evidence at this time to suggest that the victim provoked the suspects in any way. We are looking for anyone who may have information about this assault to contact us.”

The two male suspects are both described as being approximately 6′ 2″ tall with goatees and several tattoos on their arms.

Police are asking anyone with information regarding this incident to call the Chilliwack RCMP at 604 792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
