The Abbotsford Police Department is looking for witnesses to an incident in which a teen boy was attacked and left unconscious.

Const. Ian MacDonald said the assault took place Tuesday, Nov. 12 at about 5 p.m., when a 13-year-old boy was walking through Mill Lake Park.

He entered the park from Ware Street and was walking south around the perimeter of the lake.

The boy believes he was attacked by a person, possibly armed with a weapon, because he briefly lost consciousness and awoke on the ground with an unknown witness offering assistance.

The boy eventually made his way home, and the incident was reported to police the following day. The victim suffered a contusion to his head.

Police would like to speak to the witness, who is described as a Caucasian man with a slim build, a slight goatee and wearing a grey hoodie, jogging pants and runners.

They would also like to speak to anyone else who might have seen what occurred. Anyone with information is asked to call the APD at 604-859-5225 or text 222973 (abbypd).
