Suspect described as Caucasian man wearing grey shirt

Victoria police are looking for the man behind a downtown assault that left another man with life-altering injures.

On Aug.21 around 8:30 p.m., police were called to Pandora Avenue and Quadra Street for a report of a man assaulted. When VicPD arrived, they found a man on the ground in the bike lane. He was unable to tell police what had happened but a witness said he had been blindsided by an attacker.

The victim was taken to hospital for treatment where it was determined that he was suffering non-life-threatening, but life-altering injuries.
