Brazen baseball bat beating

A brazen attack involving a baseball bat beating has police asking for anyone with information to come forward.

Four youths were walking home on 20th Street in New Westminster Friday, about 8 p.m., when their soccer ball crossed paths with a passing vehicle.

The vehicle came to a stop and a man allegedly got out of the passenger side and chased the four youths with a metal baseball bat.

One of the youths was struck with the bat and needed to be hospitalized.

“This is a gross overreaction on the part of the motorist,” said New West PD Sgt. Jeff Scott. “We want to hear from anyone who may have witnessed this incident.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact the department at 604-525-5411.
