Vancouver: Police are investigating an unprovoked attack that left an East Vancouver man with significant injuries.

Vancouver police said the attack occurred just before 9:30 am on Wednesday as the 58-year-old man was standing by a bus stop near Kingsway and McKinnon Street, in the city’s Renfrew-Collingwood neighbourhood. 

A stranger began yelling and acting erratically, then attacked the victim without provocation before walking off, the Vancouver Police Department said in a press release. 

A passerby found the victim and called 911. The victim, who lives nearby, was taken to hospital with head injuries, who is expected to survive.

“Officers spent Wednesday canvassing the neighbourhood for witnesses and video of the crime,” the police said.

Anyone who has information about the incident has been requested to contact the police.
