Probation for vicious and unprovoked attack

Ever wonder what happens to people after they have been arrested and charged with a serious crime?

Two Langley men have now gone through the court system and received probation for being involved in a vicious, unprovoked attack and robbery at the Langley City 7-Eleven in November, 2012.

Allan Carmichael, 30, and Jordan Jaric, 25, were originally charged with one count each of robbery.

Carmichael, who has a long criminal history for similar offences, was found guilty of the lesser charge of theft under $5,000 and Jaric was also found guilty of assault.

Carmichael was given two years probation.

Jaric, who has no criminal background, was given 24 months probation, a 10-year firearm ban and ordered to pay a $50 victim surcharge in March.

The attack was so brutal it left the victim lying in the middle of the road bleeding and unconscious, said police.

Around 11:20 p.m., Langley RCMP were called by a passing motorist who saw two men beating on another just outside the 56 Avenue convenience store.

The first officer to arrive found the unconscious victim lying in the middle of the road with his friend watching over him, said police.

It took several minutes for him to regain consciousness.

His friend told police they had exited the 7-Eleven and walked past two men who appeared drunk.  It’s alleged that one of the suspects punched the victim, who tried to walk away but was unable to, as both the men knocked him to the ground and punched him repeatedly.

At the time, it was alleged the victim was punched and kicked in the head. The two suspects then took the victim’s coat and fled on foot.

Witnesses to the beating told police the two suspects were standing in front of Army & Navy store.

Officers went across the street and arrested the two who were holding the victim’s jacket.
