Constable Brian Montague says a 34-year-old Richmond man is still recovering in hospital after he was punched in the head on Oct. 25. It was outside The Roadhouse in the 600 block of Smithe, while he was enjoying an evening out with his wife.
A 23-year-old Coquitlam man was arrested, but police are still looking for witnesses.
Montague says 10 people have been sucker-punched this year in Vancouver, and they’ve either been seriously injured or killed.
He says it appears young men travelling to downtown Vancouver from the Lower Mainland are looking for trouble.
