Coquitlam police are asking for the public’s help in identifying two jackets found at the site of a vicious assault against a 64-year-old security guard at a construction site earlier this month.

The unprovoked assault by three men against Hoshiar Bajwa left him with 100 stitches and possibly blind in one eye.

Two jackets were found near where Bajwa was attacked, while patrolling Pitt River Community Middle School on Tyner Street in Port Coquitlam, and investigators said in a release they likely belong to the attackers.

“These jackets are pretty unique when you put them together,” said Coquitlam RCMP spokesman Cpl. Jamie Chung. “We are hoping someone can come forward with information on the owners of the jackets.”

Bajwa was jumped from behind after approaching a man who had hopped the fence into the site around 3 a.m. on Oct. 14. He said he needed help because he was being chased by two guys.

Bajwa was blindsided and repeatedly beaten with a metal rod and kicked, all in the head, for what seemed to him like 10 minutes, and it continued even when he fell to the ground.

Bajwa described the three men as white and in their mid-20s, one five-foot-eight, two about five-five.

Arvinder Tanesar at Canuck Security said nothing was stolen from the site and there was no vandalism.

Police are asking anyone with information about the jackets or the assault to call them at 604-945-1550, quoting file number 2012-28845, contact Crime Stoppers anonymously, at 1-800-222-8477, go to solvecrime.ca, or text BCTIP and a message to CRIMES (274637) or go to Facebook at facebook.com/metrovancouvercrimestoppers.

Crime Stoppers also has a mobile app for iPhone and Android.

shoudlve stayed in india LOL!

Parhar says:

You know what Bill, I’m gonna give you a girl’s name… Sally.

Now, push them pigtails out of your ears, stop thinking about that dreamy Justin Beaver or whatever gets you steamy and listen up, Sally, cause I’m only gonna say this once.

Perhaps you want to troll here and cause some umbrage. But you comented yesterday at 10.08 and no one has replied to you at all, except me, to tell you… say what you want. You don’t matter, you’re irrelevant, you have no power. So do your worst.

If you don’t hear anymore from me, it’s cause I don’t respect you.

manny says:

white ppl doing hate crimes? anything new???? they show more hate towards ppl then anyother ppl

Jon says:

There is absolutely no evidence to suggest this is a hate crime. It’s just the guard cries racism as do all minorities when it is going to help their cause.

Parhar says:

When did the guard cry racism? Yeah, that’s right, he didn’t. He can barely talk. Hillbilly.

Parhar says:

Manny, shut up. What a bakwass generalization. Oh, and if you swear at me in Punjabi, that’s it… I’m gonna give you a girl’s name too.

Jon says:

The Province, Oct. 15 / 12

“Now Bajwa’s family is left wondering what the motive could be for the assault, whether it was an attempted robbery or a racially motivated attack”

Automatically assume it was racial just becuase he is a minority.

You stand corrected. It would be nice if you could be somewhat accurate in your information.

Parhar says:

You claimed the guard, yet, the article says the “family”.

Second, they are not “assuming” it was a racial attack, but they are wondering if it was.

Third, since there is no evidence that it was not a racially motivated attack, ruling it out is shoddy police work.

Fourth, assuming it was a racial attack was the 2nd assumption in that sentence. Notice that the first was “an attempted robbery”. Since there is no evidence that it was not an attempted robbery, again, it’s shoddy police work to rule that out.

Ahhhh. You stand corrected. God, I’m good at dismantling dumb comments.

Sheeple says:

Coquitlam police? Did they finally toss out the RCMP?
