A Chilliwack woman was punched in the chest after speaking to two men in an underground parking garage last week, Mounties say.
The 64-year-old woman was walking through the underground lot when she spotted two suspicious men standing next to her vehicle, according to police. The woman questioned the men, one of whom then punched her hard enough in the chest to leave a bruise.
The victim fled the scene without further injury.
"An assault like this leaves the victim feeling very vulnerable and unsafe," RCMP spokesperson Const. Tracy Wolbeck said in a news release. "This is something that we take very seriously and hope that someone saw something that can lead us to the suspects."
One suspect was described as five-foot-nine and 160 pounds and in his early- to mid-20s. He had a short brush cut and wore a white-hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, black runners and had a scar under his right eye. Both he and the other man were described as First Nations.
The second suspect was around the same age and about five-foot-four and 200 pounds. He had a stocky build and a reddish brown mohawk with a ponytail. He wore a sleeveless shirt, grey sweat pants and had tattoos down his arms. He also had a tattoo resembling a snake around his neck.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
