The suspect approached the Asian victim at a bus stop near Granville and West Pender Streets, punched her in the face and then fled on a transit bus. The assault appears to be unprovoked as there was no communication between the victim and the attacker.
“We are investigating this as a stranger assault and the motive is unknown,” says Sergeant Aaron, VPD.
The attacker is described as a white man in his mid-20s with a medium build. He was wearing a dark colored t-shirt with a distinctive deer emblem on the front. He was also wearing a grey, long-sleeve shirt underneath his t-shirt and a beanie style hat with grey and yellow stripes.
