Police hit dead end on assault case, look to public for help

The Kitimat RCMP needs the public's help investigating an assault from New Years Eve.

An investigation in to a serious assault on a young man from New Years Eve 2013 has hit a stumbling block and the Kitimat RCMP are looking to the public for help.

On December 31, 2013, three teens were walking on Kingfisher Avenue near Heron Avenue when they came across a man at a bus stop.

Th teens made friendly conversation but then the man, police say, suddenly attacked them.

The male, who is so-far unidentified, tried to hit two of the teens but they evaded, but the third was struck in the jaw, causing an injury severe enough to require surgery.

The three youths fled the area and there are no other witnesses to the event who have so far come forward to police.

With no other leads, the RCMP would ask anyone with knowledge or a witness to this event, or who may know who the suspect is, to call Constable G. Parish, the investigating officer, at 250-632-7111.
