SURREY â€” Mounties are looking for three men after a 55-year-old man was beaten with a stick near Whalleyâ€™s Front Room drop-in centre for the homeless late Tuesday night.
The victim was found â€œunresponsiveâ€ on the street, suffering from cuts to his face and head, and was rushed to Royal Columbian Hospital. A broken wooden stick was found nearby.
Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet said itâ€™s not known if the victim was unresponsive because of his injuries, or level of intoxication.
â€œItâ€™s probably a combination,â€ he said.
The attack happened in the 10600-block of 135A Street, at about 11 p.m. Police have yet to determine a motive for the attack, are reviewing surveillance camera footage and are canvassing in the neighbourhood for clues.
