      After a lengthy investigation, Vancouver police are asking for assistance in identifying and locating suspects involved in a road-rage assault that took place in East Vancouver this past spring.

      According to the Vancouver Police Department (VPD), a 38-year-old male driver stopped his vehicle at a traffic light at the intersection of Kingsway and Fraser Street around 2 a.m. on May 31. He then allegedly encountered an aggressive driver in a white, newer-model jeep.

      When the man exited his vehicle to confront the Jeep driver, a dark four-door sedan pulled up.

      After the man was assaulted on the road, the two vehicles sped away, heading east on Kingsway.

      The victim, who was taken to hospital for surgery, is in recovery from injuries.

      The Jeep driver is described as a white male who appeared to be about 35 to 40 years old. At the time, he was wearing a white t-shirt.

      He was accompanied by a South Asian female, who also appeared to be about 35 to 40 years old, who was holding an infant in the back seat of the jeep.

      The sedan driver is described as a South Asian male, who also seemed to be in the same age range, and who was alone in his vehicle.

      Anyone with information is asked to contact the VPD or Crime Stoppers.
