Vancouver police share video after violent confrontations at Transgender Day rally
Vancouver police have launched an investigation after violent confrontations that occurred March 31 at a rally marking the International Transgender Day of Visibility.
Detectives from VPD’s robbery, assault and arson unit have been assigned to conduct a full investigation, which will include a review of bystander video, eyewitness accounts, and victim statements. The investigation will consider all of the circumstances surrounding the incidents.
On Saturday investigators reached out to a victim who posted video of an assault online, and invited that person to meet with detectives in order to provide a statement and video footage from the incident. VPD is also sharing parts of video and images posted online by a victim, with hopes more people who witnessed the altercations will come forward with information.
Investigators believe there may be additional witnesses who have not spoken to police, as well as bystander video that may show different perspectives of what occurred.
Anyone with information is asked to call 604-717-2541.
