A North Vancouver youth is at home confined to full bed rest in the hopes he can prevent permanent eye damage. For the 13 year-old male it all started on Monday evening, August 21, 2017 as he was walking home alone along Highland Blvd. in North Vancouver. At approximately 9:30 pm, the youth was northbound on the sidewalk, near Canyon Heights Elementary School, when a southbound black Honda CRV, with loud rap music coming from it, drove by him.

As the suspect vehicle approached the unsuspecting youth he suddenly experienced an incredibly sharp pain in his right eye as an object was thrown from the passenger side window of the vehicle.

Falling to the ground the victim realized he had been struck by an egg. Within moments a vehicle stopped and an older man offered him assistance. The boy was able to walk the short distance home at which time his family took him to the hospital.

The injuries received from the egg breaking into the eye are very serious, said Cpl. De Jong of the North Vancouver RCMP. There is a strong possibility that the victim may have permanent eye damage as the result of someone’s reckless criminal actions.

Police are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect vehicle along with the person(s) involved in this incident. Anyone, including the Good Samaritan who stopped to offer assistance, who may have any information are asked to call the North Vancouver RCMP at 604-985-1311 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, referencing file #2107-21838.
