The Abbotsford Police department responded to a report of an assault on Friday November 6th, 2020 at 10:43 am in the 32071 blk of South Fraser Way.  The victim, an 88-year-old Abbotsford resident, was walking on the sidewalk at the intersection of SFW at Cedar Park Place when he was shoved and fell to the ground.

Over the weekend, we have been able to speak to the victim of this incident.  The victim is able to advise that the person that was near him spoke English and believes he was purposely shoved as there was no one else around him. 

There are conflicting descriptions of the person who may have shoved the victim; therefore, we cannot provide a suspect description. 

There is no indication at this time that this was racially motivated.

The Abbotsford Police send our wishes for a speedy recovery to this gentleman. 

If you witnessed or have information regarding this incident, please contact the Abbotsford Police Department at 604-859-5225.
