At 12:25 a.m., two young women were caught yelling racial slurs and harassing non-Caucasian passengers on the lower area of the Granville Station.

Police say another woman politely asked them to stop, and was subsequently attacked by both women.

She was punched, kicked, knocked to the ground and grabbed by the hair. She managed to break free and left to call the police.

The two attackers then boarded a westbound train, heading to Waterfront Station.

Police say the victim suffered cuts and bruises, a black eye, and injuries to one arm. She was taken to hospital for treatment.

The suspects are described as follows:

Suspect #1:

Caucasian female, early 20’s, long straight brown hair, brown eyes, medium full-figured build, wearing a black mini-dress, short light-coloured denim jacket, high heels and carrying a black and white clutch purse.

Suspect #2:

Caucasian female, early 20’s, long straight brown hair, brown eyes, taller and slimmer than Suspect #1, wearing a black mini-dress, brown bootie-style high heels, carrying a black jacket and a large black shoulder bag.
