Police are looking to identify a male suspect, caught on video surveillance, who assaulted a Good Samaritan.
On Monday, August 1, 2016, at approximately 2 a.m., the victim, a 21-year-old male from Sunderland, was at the Beaverton pier when he observed two males in their 20s attempting to fight a group of teenagers. The victim intervened and as he was ushering away one of the teens, he was punched on the head, rendering him unconscious. Witnesses state that the suspect helped the victim back to his feet before leaving in a black Chevrolet.
The victim was treated in hospital for serious head injuries, but has since recovered.
The suspect is described as male, white, 20 to 25 years old, approximately 5’10” tall with a slim build, facial hair, and a tattoo on his upper right arm. He left in a black Chevrolet Cobalt with red tape on the windshield.
