A 60-year-old man has died following an attack in an East Vancouver park on Thursday.
Vancouver police said officers responded to a report of an assault at Grandview Park on Commercial Drive around 1:30 p.m.
Police said Gilles Hebert was allegedly assaulted and knocked unconscious. He later died of his injuries.
A 39-year-old man has been arrested.
Const. Tania Visintin said police continue to investigate Vancouver’s 12th homicide of the year.
“Investigators believe a number of people may have been walking or driving by at the time this happened and may have not realized the severity of the assault,” she said.
“We need anyone with information to come forward.”
