Earlier this week, a 93-year-old resident of Chinatown was knocked to the ground and suffered a broken hip.
He was walking to a bakery on Main Street and East Pender on Tuesday afternoon (Oct. 11) when a stranger pushed him over. Several witnesses stopped to help him and he was rushed to hospital. Vancouver police are now asking for people to come forward with information.
“Our officers have been canvassing the neighbourhood since the assault, and we have now located video of the incident,” says the VPD's Sergeant Steve Addison in a media release. “We’re still working to find people who witnessed the assault, as well as those who stopped to help.”
The suspect remains unidentified but the police say that the incident happened in an area with heavy pedestrian and vehicle traffic.
