A man has been identified and arrested following a violent attack of a young woman on the SkyTrain.
The man is a 51-year-old Vancouver resident of no fixed address and was arrested Wednesday, Sgt. Clint Hampton of the Metro Vancouver Transit Police said in a video posted to Twitter.
Court records show Sandy Sanderson has been charged with assault causing bodily harm and mischief under $5,000.
The woman suffered significant swelling to her face, a bloody nose and a cut above her eye after the attack last Saturday morning at Waterfront Station in Vancouver.
A man had been staring at her on the SkyTrain, police said, then started yelling at her: “You people are why my daughter is sick!”
