Williams Lake RCMP are investigating a serious assault.
On Wednesday July 8th, at approximately 11:30pm, the police were called to the three way intersection of Broadway Ave near the Husky Gas Station.
Arriving officers found a 70 year old man lying on the road, bleeding heavily from the face.
A witness said they heard a vehicle stop, heard a man yelling, then the vehicle sped off north bound on Hwy 97.
As the vehicle departed, the witness saw the elderly gentleman lying on the road.
The only description of the suspect and suspect vehicle provided to police was that it was a small sized hatchback of unknown make or model, and the suspect was a Caucasian man who “looked like a skateboarder type.”
The only information the victim was able to tell police at the time was that he remembers being yelled at then he was knocked down and kicked in the face.
Staff Sergeant Del Byron of the Williams Lake RCMP says while it was a random attack, it appears to be an isolated incident and that the public is not at risk.
