WEST Vancouver police have arrested two youths for a weekend assault and robbery, but an unidentified witness to the incident may hold the key to nabbing more suspects.
Two young men were in the midst of the attack at 12th Street and Kings Avenue around 9 p.m. Friday when a woman drove by in a white pickup truck, according to police. The woman yelled at the group, likely bringing a stop to the assault and scaring off the attackers. They left the scene in a black vehicle, possibly a BMW.
"She disturbed the attack and the youth fled. We have arrested two youths in conjunction with this but we do believe there could be possible outstanding people in relation to this file," said Const. Tammy Khorram, West Vancouver Police Department spokeswoman.
The assailants, a 15 year old and 16 year old, have been charged with robbery and assault causing bodily harm. They cannot be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
The West Vancouver Police Department are asking for the female driver of the white pickup truck or anyone else that has information about this crime to call police at 604-925-7300.
