Youth charged in security guard beating case

COQUITLAM (NEWS1130) – A 16-year-old youth has been charged with aggravated assault in connection with the severe beating of a security guard in Port Coquitlam.

Sixty-five-year-old Hoshiar Singh Bajwa was patrolling a construction site last October when he was viciously attacked by a group of males.

RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung says investigators are seeking the public’s help in providing information about others who were involved in the beating.

He says the youth who has been charged is expected to enter a plea at his next court appearance.

Bajwa is still recovering after being beaten repeatedly with a steel pipe.

He suffered a serious eye injury and gashes that required more than 100 stitches.

I can understand there is bad apples in all types of business and provocations with the public may happen from time to time by the younger set. I too am a Security Guard and 68 yrs. old. This man attacked was also a Senior and not in the prime years of physical condition these young thugs were. One of the thugs is a juvinile and because of the extent of the attack should be raised to adult court. This attack sounds like it was planned out. Your comment sounds to me like you are attempting to protect the thugs. Show some compassion. This wasn’t just an assault but attempted murder and should be treated as so. The victim may not have made it through this and for approx. $12.00 / hr. if that. Shame , Shame Shame.

JINX should get his head out of his back-side. This is a big problem of Society today. These punks continue to break the law and are never given appropriate sentences.
