Youth assaulted at Cultus Lake

Chilliwack RCMP are looking for witnesses to a serious assault that happened early Wednesday morning at Cultus Lake.

Just before 2 a.m. police responded to a call in the First Avenue Area. They found a youth who'd suffered head trauma, including several teeth broken. Two men had a approached the youth as he walked along the water's edge, asking him to turn around. When he tried to walk away they punched him and took him to the ground.

This was a very serious assault," said RCMP Cst. Tracy Wolbeck. "There is no evidence at this time to suggest that the victim provoked the suspects in any way. We are looking for anyone who may have information about this assault to contact us."

The suspects are both described as being approximately six-foot-two with goatees and several tattoos on their arms.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Chilliwack RCMP at 604 792-4611 or Crime Stoppers (anonymously) at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
