Witnesses, suspect sought in bus attack
Burnaby RCMP are seeking witnesses and a suspect in an attack of an elderly man on a transit bus earlier this summer.
On July 26 at about 3 p.m., the senior was riding the bus when he was viciously struck seven times in the leg by an unknown assailant.
The bus driver was able to end the attack by demanding the suspect leave the bus, say Burnaby RCMP in a press release.
When police arrived, the suspect and all the witnesses except for the bus driver, had left. The victim received minor cuts and swelling to his leg.
At the time of the attack, the bus was near the Vancouver-Burnaby border at Vanness Avenue and Boundary Road.
Anyone who witnessed or has information on the incident is asked to contact Burnaby RCMP Const. Knudsen at 604-294-7922 or, to remain anonymous, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
