Police search for owners of jackets found near scene of assault

Security guard is recovering at home following assault at a construction site two weeks ago.

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

Coquitlam RCMP have two jackets they believe are associated with a vicious assault on a security guard earlier this month, and they hope to find out who owns them.

Hoshiar Singh Bajwa, 64, was patrolling the construction site at Pitt River middle school in Port Coquitlam in the early morning hours of Oct. 14 when he was beaten by three men. He suffered head injuries and received more than 50 stitches to close gaping wounds on his face. Cpl. Jamie Chung said the man is now recovering at his Surrey home.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Our investigators continue to scour through the material we collected so far for evidence,” Chung said. “These jackets are pretty unique when you put them together. Hopefully, this will jog somebody’s memory, and those are the people we’d like to speak to.”

Anyone with information related to the jackets or the assault is asked to call Coquitlam RCMP at 604-945-1550 and quote file number 2012-28845.
