Investigators with the York Regional Police #2 District Criminal Investigations Bureau are releasing new suspect images and requesting public assistance to identify two suspects following an assault with a weapon in the Town of Richmond Hill.

Investigators have obtained new images of the suspect who assaulted a man in a parking lot in Richmond Hill, as well as an image of the man who was driving the suspect vehicle from the scene. The images are being released and public assistance is being sought to help identify the suspects.

On Tuesday, August 28, 2018, shortly after 11 a.m., York Regional Police responded to a weapons call in a parking lot on Granton Drive in the area of 16th Avenue and Leslie Street. When officers arrived, they located a victim suffering from non-life-threatening head injuries. He was transported to hospital and was later released.

Investigators learned that the victim had arrived at the building and got out of his vehicle to retrieve some items from his trunk. Suddenly, an unknown male suspect ran at him and began striking him in the head with an unknown object. The victim was able to run into the building to call for help. The suspect fled the scene and got into the passenger side of a four-door, white Chevrolet Malibu.
