Metro Vancouver Transit Police Looking For Suspect Who Allegedly Threatened Passenger With Scissors

Darpan News Desk, 12 Jan, 2018
  • Metro Vancouver Transit Police Looking For Suspect Who Allegedly Threatened Passenger With Scissors
Metro Vancouver Transit Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man who allegedly threatened a SkyTrain passenger with a pair of scissors.
 
 
At approximately 3:15 pm, December 7, 2017, a 24-year-old Vancouver man boarded the SkyTrain at Nanaimo Station, heading towards Broadway and Commercial Station, and sat down. He looked up to see a man standing over him, allegedly with a pair of scissors in his hand, aggressively threatening verbally to harm him.
 
 
The victim recognized the suspect as a man that had been banned from the victim’s place of employment, in March of 2017, for allegedly using drugs in the pub washroom. The suspect, known to the victim only as “Thomas”, is apparently still upset over the incident and blames the victim.
 
 
Two other passengers on the train stood up to intervene, allowing the victim to leave the train at Broadway and Commercial Station. The suspect followed, allegedly continuing to utter numerous verbal threats. Once the victim left the station and crossed the street, the suspect allegedly continued to shout threats at him but stopped following him. The victim continued on to work where he called Metro Vancouver Transit Police, who initiated an investigation.
 
 
The suspect, who goes by the name of “Thomas”, is described as a Caucasian male, late 50’s, 5’6” tall, medium build, blue eyes, slicked-back dark hair, a “crushed” nose, walks with a stooped posture and was wearing a dark jacket, light blue jeans and carrying a black bag. (Photographs of the suspect are below)
 
 
Anyone with information regarding the identity of this suspect or who witnessed this incident is asked to contact Metro Vancouver Transit Police at 604.515.8300 or text using code 87.77.77 (ref. file# 2017-20919).
