Posted on Wednesday October 03, 2018

 

Investigators with the York Regional Police #4 District Criminal Investigations Bureau are releasing video of a violent assault and seeking public assistance to identify two suspects following an altercation at a tire shop in the City of Vaughan.

On Monday, August 20, 2018, shortly after 1 p.m., police were called to a tire shop located on Hanlan Road for a report of an assault in progress. When officers arrived, they found two men, one suffering from serious injuries. He was taken to hospital for treatment of his injuries, from which he may not fully recover.

Investigators have been able to determine two unknown men entered the tire shop looking to speak to one of the employees. Shortly after the men entered the store, they assaulted one of the employees who fled out the front door of the shop. The two men returned to the business and assaulted a second victim. During the assault the victim was punched and kicked multiple times and a tire was thrown at his upper body. Following the assault, the suspects fled the area on foot, south on Scholes Road towards Steeles Avenue.

Investigators are releasing video surveillance of the assault and are asking anyone with information about the identities of the suspects to please come forward to police.
