Vancouver Police are asking the public for help to identify a suspect who attacked a woman with a golf club.
The 23-year-old woman was walking along Gladstone Street near Kingsway on April 2nd, when a man on a bike approached her.
He then hit her in the back of the head with the club.
Fortunately, a passerby intervened and scared the man off.
Cst. Brian Montague says it’s still early in the investigation and the motive for the attack remains unclear.
“We’re not sure if this is robbery motivated, or if this is sexually motivated, weather we’re dealing with someone who has mental health issues. These are pieces of the puzzle we haven’t been able to put together yet.”
Montague says they’re now looking for a young white male in connection to the incident.
“The image of who we believe is responsible is described as being in his late 20’s or early 30’s, he’s white, clean shaven, 6 feet tall, with an average build, short-dark brown hair, and what’s described as a large brow.”
Anyone with information is asked to call the Vancouver Police department.
