Winnipeg police are hoping surveillance photos from a serious assault on February 15 can track down a suspect.

Police say a 20-year-old woman was struck in the upper body with a chair while at a restaurant in the 1400 block of Regent Avenue West at around 2:30 a.m.

Officers responded to the establishment after two men began causing a disturbance by verbally harassing staff and customers. When a man and woman approached the service counter, an argument erupted and that’s when the woman was hit with the object.

She was left unconscious and the suspects fled.

One of the men is shown in the photos above. Police ask anyone with information to contact investigators at (204) 986-2857 or Crime Stoppers at (204) 786-TIPS (8477).

UPDATE — Saturday, March 14 — A 43-year-old man turned him into police on Friday and is facing a charge of assault with a weapon. He was released on a promise to appear.
