It’s a long road to recovery for 64-year-old Hoshiar Singh Bajwa.

The Port Coquitlam security guard was kicked and brutally beaten with a metal rod at a construction site by three men on Oct. 14, needing 100 stitches to his head.

“It’s a long recovery process — he’s come home, he feels a little better,” said cousin, Baldev Grewal. “(But) he’s not the same person … the scene keeps on playing in his mind.”

Bajwa was moved out of hospital and transferred to a care facility, but he missed his family, so he finally returned home earlier this week.

“At times his pain is unbearable,” said Grewal. “After so many days the pain medication should have been reduced but now they’re increasing his dosage.”

It’s a recovery process for his family as well, as they still wait for answers weeks later. Police are yet to track down any suspects.

“(The family is) waiting for answers and they’re taking it day by day and they’re just thankful he’s home and he’s alive,” said Grewal.

Friends in the community pooled together a $5,000 reward to help catch the attackers – and although there hasn’t been much movement yet, the support has meant a lot to the family.

“(The community is) talking, they’re very supportive – nobody wants this to happen and they’re showing support,” said Grewal.

Coquitlam RCMP aren’t involved in the $5,000 reward, but said they’re still hoping to collect tips since they released photos of two jackets found at the crime scene.

“We are encouraging more (people) to come in so hopefully we can get more and we can put the pieces together quicker,” spokesman Cpl. Jamie Chung said. “It’s just a work in progress.”
