BMX bikers run over man in West Van, strike him on the head
Police are looking for two BMX bikers who ran over an incapacitated man on the 100-block of Whonoak Road on the Squamish Nation reserve shortly after 10 p.m. yesterday.
After riding their bikes directly over the 57-year-old man, one biker returned, picked up his bicycle and used it to strike the victim on the head, police say.
A person nearby rushed to assist and the suspects fled. West Van police soon arrived on the scene but couldn't find either men, who were both wearing black hoodies that covered most of their faces. The suspects are slim, between 20 and 30 years old and were wearing blue jeans. One of the men may have had facial hair. Their ethnicity isn't known.
Witnesses say the victim was apparently lying on the road when the attack occurred. He was taken to the hospital and released this morning.
West Van police are asking anyone with information to call them at 604-925-7300.
