RCMP have released a composite sketch of one of the suspects involved in a violent ‘hammer attack’ in Langley last month.

On the morning of October 18 at 3 a.m., police were deployed to the 20200 block of 56 Avenue. Police believe two attackers were in the process of robbing a female with a handgun when they were interrupted by a male.

At that point, one of the suspects pointed a firearm at the man’s head. His partner in crime went to a vehicle and returned with a hammer which he then used to hit the victim in the head, kicking him at the same time.

The victim lost consciousness for a moment and when he awoke, his attacker continued to hit him with the hammer and kick him on the ground.

The two males ran to a newer silver car (possibly a Hyundai or a Toyota 4 door) and fled. It is possible the vehicle had after market, newer style cuts in the fender.

The victim was transported to hospital having sustained a serious skull fracture.

One male suspect is described as possibly of Philippine descent, medium skin complexion, 6’1″ tall, mid to late 20’s, approximately 200 lbs., athletic build, bald and shaved, a tattoo on his neck written in script and was wearing black clothing, dress shoes, dress pants and a man purse.

The other male is described as Caucasian, 5’10” tall, mid to late 20’s, skinny, scrubby looking, wearing a hat and a white and red hoodie.

Anyone with information on the incident should call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200 or anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
