Vancouver Police are searching for a suspect after surveillance video captured another random attack on a senior in Chinatown.
Sgt. Steve Addison told Global News a 93-year-old man was walking to a bakery near Main and East Pender streets around 3:15 p.m. Tues. when he was knocked to the ground by a stranger.
The elderly victim, who has lived in the neighbourhood for 30 years, required hospitalization for a broken hip.
Police said several witnesses stopped to help the senior but investigators are still interested in hearing from people who witnessed the attack, have dash cam footage, and/or assisted the victim.
It’s unclear at this time if the unprovoked assault may have been racially motivated.
Investigators have not yet identified a suspect.
