Vancouver Police are currently investigating an assault against a 44-year-old man in a wheelchair that occurred Thursday morning.

According to police, the incident took place in a Collingwood neighbourhood.


Just before 8 a.m., first responders were called to the underground parking lot of an apartment building on Cecil Street near Kingsway for a man in a wheelchair with serious injuries. Once officers arrived, they determined that the injuries were likely the result of a recent assault.

The victim, a 44-year-old Vancouver man, was taken to hospital, where he remains in serious condition.

At this moment, no arrests have been made.

However, to assist police, investigators would like to speak with anyone who has dash-cam video and was driving in the area of Cecil Street between Kingsway and Euclid Avenue between 7:30 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. yesterday morning.

If you have any information, please call the VPD’s Major Crime Section at 604-717-2541, or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
