It's been over two weeks since a man was severely beaten in a fight outside a Cochrane establishment on 2nd Ave.

Now, the Cochrane RCMP is seeking the public's help in identifying the suspect.

On Sept. 24, Cochrane RCMP and EMS were dispatched to a report of a fight in progress outside of a Historic Downtown establishment.

Emergency crews arrived on the scene to find a male unconscious due to an assault.  The victim regained consciousness and was transported to a Calgary hospital by ground ambulance with significant head injuries. It was later determined that the victim’s injuries included multiple broken bones in his face that required repair surgery and a brain bleed.

Witnesses described the suspect as light in complexion with a lean/athletic build and wore a black tucked-in t-shirt, jeans, boots, and ball cap. A photo of the suspect has been obtained from video surveillance in the area.

Anyone who can identify the suspect or anyone with video of the incident is asked to contact Cochrane RCMP at 403-851-8000 or your local police. If you wish to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), online at, or by using the "P3 Tips" app available through the Apple App or Google Play Store.
