Burnaby RCMP have confirmed the news of an unusual and apparently unprovoked attack at a busy Burnaby intersection that has prompted police to seek public’s help in tracking down the suspect. The female victim was walking east on the south side of Kingsway at around 10:20 a.m. on last Friday, when an unidentified male suspect allegedly stabbed her with a needle while she waited at a light at McKay Avenue.
Thereafter, the incident was reported by the victim to officers at the Southwest Community Police Station an hour later. Consequently, the officers moved her to a nearby hospital, from where she was released a short while later. According to a press release issued by Burnaby RCMP “while the nature of this incident is a significant concern for police, it is also highly unusual. As of today, we’ve had no other reported incidents.”
