Vancouver police issue warning about ‘random’ attacks in Stanley Park

Vancouver police warn about 'random' attacks

VANCOUVER — Police in Vancouver have issued a public warning following two apparently random attacks in Stanley Park.

Const. Jason Doucette says there’s no evidence directly linking the attacks, but police believe it’s important to warn people who may be in the park at night.

Police say the first attack happened last November, when an 82-year-old man was found in his car in apparent distress.

They say the man was suffering from serious, traumatic injuries and remains in hospital.

The second attack happened on Feb. 1, when a 61-year-old man was attacked and killed while walking along the sea wall.

Police say both attacks appear to be random and there are no suspects in either case.
