Just before 8 a.m. first responders were called to the underground parking lot in an apartment building on Cecil Street near Kingsway to help a man in a wheelchair with serious injuries. Officers were able to determine that the injuries were likely the result of a recent assault.

The victim, a 44-year-old Vancouver man, was transported to hospital where he remains in serious condition.

Investigators are looking to speak to anyone who has dash-cam video and was driving in the area of Cecil Street between Kingsway and Euclid Avenue between 7:30 and 8 a.m. Wednesday.

Anyone who may have witnesses this assault, or who has any related information, including dash-cam video, is asked to call investigators at 6041-717-2541 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
