Vancouver Police arrest suspect for mischief after racist incident

Darpan News Desk Vancouver Police, 26 May, 2020
  • Vancouver Police arrest suspect for mischief after racist incident

Vancouver Police arrested a man on Saturday afternoon after he smashed the window of a vehicle parked in Chinatown with two Asian women inside.

“This was a random, unprovoked incident and would have been very terrifying for the victims,” says Sergeant Aaron Roed, VPD. “It was particularly concerning for responding officers, considering the anti-Asian crime and incidents we have seen in Vancouver recently.”

The women were confronted by the suspect after they parked their car near East Pender and Columbia streets. While they were in the car, he yelled obscenities at them and then smashed a window with a chisel he was carrying in his bag.

Police were called and officers were able to locate and arrest the suspect with the help of a witness. The man was transported to the VPD jail and released on an undertaking to appear which requires him to report to court on a future date.
