Vancouver Police are searching for witnesses after a 93-year-old man was knocked to the ground and suffered a broken hip in Chinatown Tuesday night.
The victim, a neighbourhood resident for 30 years, was walking to a bakery near Main Street and East Pender when he was pushed over by a stranger around 3:15 Tuesday afternoon. Several witnesses stopped to help the senior, who was taken to hospital.
"Our officers have been canvassing the neighbourhood since the assault, and we have now located video of the incident," says Sergeant Steve Addison, adding the suspect has not yet been identified. "We’re still working to find people who witnessed the assault, as well as those who stopped to help."
VPD has released security video of the assault, which happened in an area with heavy pedestrian and vehicle traffic.
