“The VPD believes the two individuals in the photos, a man and a woman, may have information about this assault,” media relations officer Sgt. Jason Robillard said in a press release. “We are hopeful that the public can assist us in identifying the pair.”

Just before 8 a.m. on July 4 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 left with serious injuries.

On Wednesday, police released photos of two people, who were captured on a CCTV camera in the area of the assault.

The man in the photo is believed to be Caucasian with a slim build and blond hair. He was wearing a denim jacket, a shirt with a large “O” on the front, black shorts, black flip flops and a black baseball hat. The woman is also believed to be Caucasian. She has a medium build and orange or blond, shaggy hair. She was wearing a black, cropped top, a red jacket, green camouflage-print capri pants and sandals.

Anyone who recognizes the couple in the photo is asked to call investigators at 604-717-2541.
