Vancouver police say a man was assaulted in a fast-food restaurant on Granville Street on Thursday (March 23) night.
Around 7 p.m., Vancouver Police Department (VPD) officers responded to a call at the McDonald's on Granville Street near Smithe Street for a "man who had been assaulted in the restroom," Const. Tania Visintin told V.I.A.
The man was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and no one was arrested, she added.
A couple of videos circulating on social media showed a large police presence outside of the popular eatery following the assault.
Some people suggested that the man had been stabbed but Visintin clarified that "the injuries are unclear at this point."
An investigation is ongoing.
