RCMP seeking witnesses after alleged assault on UBC campus
RCMP say a woman was seriously injured after trying to break up a fight at the University of British Columbia's Point Grey campus on Thursday.
Police responded after receiving a report of an assault with a weapon in the basement of the Centre for Advanced Wood Processing, located at 2424 Main Mall, around 4 p.m. PT.
A statement from University RCMP said officers arrived to find a woman suffering serious but non life-threatening injuries after she intervened in a fight between a man and a woman.
The woman was taken to hospital and is receiving treatment.
Police said they weren't able to find the pair involved in the fight, but two people — a man and woman — were seen running from the area, separately.
Police are looking for a man described as Asian, 6 feet tall, in his mid-twenties, with dark eyes and hair, a square face, a deep voice with a slight accent, and may have scratches on the right side of his face and neck.
He was last seen wearing a black puffy jacket, dark jeans and white shoes.
Anyone who witnessed the altercation or may have information on the incident is asked to call police at 604-224-1322.
