It was a story that generated a lot of attention last fall when a man was sucker-punched in downtown Vancouver and ended up with life-altering injuries.
Now, a charge has been laid.
One charge of aggravated assault has been laid against a 23-year-old man who was arrested at his home in Coquitlam last November.
However, Vancouver Police say they aren’t releasing his name because of a publication ban.
Last October a thirty-four year old man making his way home with his wife after a night out with friends in downtown Vancouver was punched after walking past two groups of men in front of the Roadhouse Bar at 670 Smithe Street.
The man fell, hit his head on the concrete, causing severe injuries and ultimately brain damage.
