Abbotsford Police are asking for help in indentifying these two men

The Abbotsford Police Department (APD) is asking for the public’s help in trying to identify individuals involved in a fight at a local pub earlier this week.

Police are also looking for assistance in identifying anyone connected to two vehicles that are possibly associated with the incident.

Police were called at about 7:40 p.m. on Sunday to Finnegan’s Pub and Grill – located at 33780 King Rd. across from Abbotsford Centre – for reports of a fight between two groups of young men.

Sgt. Judy Bird said the investigation has determined that a group of men arrived at the pub to specifically target one person who was there with another group.

The brawl resulted in table and chairs being thrown and glass being broken. It spilled into the parking lot, and several people scattered when police arrived.

Two people suffered minor injuries.

Bird said the business owner and staff have co-operated with police, but those involved in the fight, including the targeted individual, have not been helpful.

Police have now released photos recovered from the pub’s video surveillance cameras.

Bird said investigators are continuing to gather forensic and video evidence of what she said was a “violent assault.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the APD at 604-859-5225, text abbypd (222973) or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
