Vancouver police have arrested a suspect in an armed robbery Wednesday afternoon.
The suspect allegedly entered a store in the 800-block of Granville Street at around 12:30 p.m., tried to steal some merchandise and then pulled a knife.
He fled on a bike and was chased by a Vancouver police officer. The officer was able to stop the suspect near Smithe Street and Expo Boulevard and, with assistance from a passerby, took the man into custody.
The suspect complained of an injury following the arrest and was taken to hospital.
The Independent Investigations Office of B.C. (IIO), the provincial civilian-led police oversight agency, is currently investigating.
The IIO investigates all officer-related incidents that result in serious harm or death, whether or not there is any allegation of wrongdoing.
