Jackets believed to have been worn by the men who attacked a security guard in Port Coquitlam two weeks ago.

$5,000 reward offered for information about attackers

64-year-old Hoshiar Singh Bajwa was badly beaten in Port Coquitlam Oct. 14.

A group of Surrey residents is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of suspects in connection with an assault on a security guard in Port Coquitlam.

Vikram Bajwa, along with Rajvir Singh Jhand, Jaswinder Parmar, Kuldip Singh and Hakam Bhullar, are each pitching in money for the reward. None of them know the victim of the assault, 64-year-old Hoshiar Singh Bajwa, also a Surrey resident.

“We thought we should do something about it since there has been no arrest for over two weeks now,” said Vikram Bajwa. “We don’t know him personally, it’s just a community effort, a good citizen effort.”

In the early morning hours of Sunday, Oct. 14 three men attacked Hoshiar Bajwa as he patrolled the construction site at Pitt River middle school. He suffered extensive injuries, with large lacerations across his face, and is now recovering at home.

Earlier this week, Coquitlam RCMP released photos of two jackets found near the scene of the assault, which they believe were worn by the suspects.

Officers are hoping anyone who recognizes the jackets will come forward with information about the incident and call 604-945-1550 with file number 2012-28845.
