May 13, 2016. The Edmonton Police Service Hate Crimes Detail is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying a man allegedly involved in an aggravated assault near Kingsway Mall last month. On April 9, around 7:30 p.m., two brothers were approached by an unknown male at a transit station in the area of the mall. The male suspect began berating one of the two brothers, who identifies as openly gay. The male suspect then proceeded to assault the brothers, leaving them both with serious injuries. The suspect fled on foot and boarded a transit bus. He is described as an Aboriginal male in his early 20s, about 5’9”, wearing jeans, skateboarding sneakers and a hooded sweatshirt with patched elbows and shoulders. Anyone with information about this assault is asked to contact the EPS Hate Crimes hotline directly at 780-421-3489.
