Every day there are new videos posted on YouTube that shock viewers across the world. Most of them are eye-catching with click-baity titles designed to grab your attention. This isn't the case with a very shocking video that was posted earlier today by the Vancouver Police Department.
The Vancouver Police Department is currently searching for a suspect in a criminal case. Police posted a video that caught the whole shocking incident on YouTube in hopes of finding the dangerous suspect.
The video entitled "Vancouver Police Search For Assault Suspect" was posted on July 30th. The incredibly short four-second video captures the moments before a seemingly innocent man was struck by oncoming traffic.
In the shocking video, you can see that a Vancouver driver with a dash camera was driving down Hastings Street near the PNE. On the right, you can see a small group of people near a bus stop.
Suddenly, an angry man pushes another man into the street. The man in the black shirt stumbles a bit but remains standing up. The man in the white shirts falls to the ground in front of the oncoming vehicles.
According to the description on the YouTube video, Vancouver Police are looking to identify the man in the video. Around 10:30 PM on July 16th, the two men in the video left a concert at the PNE Amphitheatre and were walking down the street when they stopped to check on a young woman who appeared to be intoxicated.
After she stated that she was fine, they continued walking. Moments later, they were confronted by an agitated man who had been walking behind the woman. The man allegedly ran towards the two men and deliberately pushed one of them into traffic.
The victim was then struck and run over by a white SUV. The driver pulled over and waited for police. The victim is still recovering from serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
The suspect is described as a Caucasian man in his mid-20s, 6'0" to 6'2" tall, with a heavy athletic build. He has short dark hair, dark coloured facial hair and was wearing a black crew neck t-shirt and shorts.
The suspect and the seemingly intoxicated woman appeared to be friends. Both ran away from the scene prior to the police showing up. The woman is described as Asian, 20-25-years-old, 5'2" to 5'4" tall, slim build with medium length black hair. She was wearing a white tank top or a sundress.
Police are asking anyone with infomration on the assault to call detectives at 604-717-2541 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
