Langley RCMP have released a sketch of one of the two suspects involved in the vicious hammer attack on Oct. 18 in Langley City

Sketch released of suspect in vicious hammer attack

One of two suspect has neck tattoo. The Good Samaritan had his skull fractured in the Oct. 18 beating in Langley City.

A composite sketch of one of the suspects, a bald man with a neck tattoo, involved in the violent hammer attack of a Good Samaritan on Oct. 18 has been released.

Langley RCMP is asking the public to study the sketch and call if you are able to assist with identifying the man. Police have received a few good tips since the brutal beating in Langley City, but no arrests have been made.

On Oct. 18 just after 3 a.m., police were called to the 20200 block of 56 Avenue, right near the 7-Eleven.

Police believe two men were in the process of robbing a woman at gunpoint when they were interrupted by a Good Samaritan who tried to help.

At that point, one of the suspects pointed the hand gun at the man’s head.  His partner in crime went to a vehicle and returned with a hammer which he then used to hit the victim in the head, kicking him at the same time.

The victim lost consciousness for a moment and when he awoke, his attacker continued to hit him with the hammer and kick him on the ground, said police.

The two men ran to a newer silver car (possibly a Hyundai or a Toyota 4 door) and fled.  It is possible the vehicle had after market, newer style cuts in the fender.

The victim was taken to hospital having sustained a serious skull fracture.

The suspect in the sketch is described as possibly of Philippine descent, medium skin complexion, 6’1” tall, mid to late 20s, approximately 200 lbs., athletic build, bald and shaved, a tattoo on his neck written in script and was wearing black clothing, dress shoes, dress pants and a man purse.

The other male suspect is described as Caucasian, 5’10” tall, mid to late 20s, skinny, scrubby looking, wearing a hat and a white and red hoodie.

If you have any information call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200 or if you need to remain anonymous call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
