Burnaby RCMP Investigating Unusual, Unprovoked Needle Stabbing

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.”

Investigative Services Officer Insp. Bob Page revealed that he is now seeking public’s help in identifying the suspect in the allegedly unprovoked attack. According to Page, the suspect can be described as a dark-skinned man about 35 years old and 5-7 with short, dyed blonde hair. The release confirmed that the suspect was wearing a light blue tank top, dark jeans and carrying three shopping bags at the time of attack. Page mentioned that “the suspect’s description stands out and we remain hopeful that someone will identify him. That’s why we are urging the public to share the suspect’s description with your families and friends.”
