Suspect wanted for assault on Canada Line

Metro Vancouver Transit Police are looking for a suspect involved in an incident at Broadway City Hall Canada Line Station.

When the man attempted to intervene, the suspect told him to mind his own business, police said.

When the train pulled into the station, the man and the woman boarded the train. The suspect tried to enter behind them. Police said that’s when the man tried to block the suspect from entering and that’s when the suspect allegedly pushed the man out of the way, causing him to fall.
