Winnipeg police are looking for a man they say punched a customer waiting in line to make a purchase at a convenience store earlier this year.
The victim, a man in his 40s, was waiting in line at the store in the 1800 block of Henderson Highway on February 2 when the assault occurred.
Police say the suspect walked in at around 10:30 p.m. and punched the man in the face. The victim was treated for significant facial injuries in hospital.
The suspect is said to have been driving a white Dodge Journey SUV with three other males inside the vehicle.
He is described as a Caucasian man in his mid-20?s, approximately 5?’8″? in height with a medium build. He was wearing a green coloured hoodie and a black baseball cap with what appears to be a Toronto Blue Jays logo.
Anyone with information is asked to call police at (204) 986-6219 or Crime Stoppers at (204) 786-TIPS (8477).
