Langley woman reportedly viciously attacked by a man she was trying to help

Police have released a photo of the suspect in hopes the public can help identify the man.

Langley RCMP are hoping the public can help identify this man who is suspected of viciously assaulting a Langley woman who was trying to help him by opening up her home to him. He also assaulted a man who tried to intervene on June 14.

Langley RCMP are now searching for a man who they say choked a woman and slammed her head against the wall and then assaulted a man who tried to intervene on Tuesday, June 14.

Police were called to the woman’s home in the Willoughby area for a report of an assault, said Langley RCMP Cpl. Holly Largy.

Police have learned that the victim had met the suspect several days earlier and offered him the use of her shower and the storage of his things.  She became fearful of him so when he left her residence, she moved his belongings outside her home.

“When he returned on Tuesday, he was upset and grabbed her by the throat and hit her head into the wall,” said Largy.

A male acquaintance of the victim tried to intercede but was assaulted as well for his efforts, said police.

The woman and man are traumatized but recovering from their injuries, said Largy.

Police have released a picture of the suspect in hopes someone can identify him.
