Tourist stabbed in random attack in downtown Vancouver
Police say a tourist was hurt in a random stabbing in downtown Vancouver on Wednesday.
The 28-year-old visitor from New Zealand was stabbed by a stranger on the corner of Nelson and Granville Streets in the Granville entertainment district just before 8 p.m.
He took himself to hospital for treatment of his injuries, which were not life-threatening.
“From what we know so far, this attack appears to be completely random and unprovoked,” said Vancouver Police Department spokeswoman Const. Tania Visintin in a news release.
Investigators are looking a man about 5-foot-5 inches tall with a medium complexion. He was wearing a white T-shirt, dark jeans, and blue baseball cap.
