VicPD say they have arrested a man in connection with a random attack investigated as a hate crime on a BC Transit bus in June.
Just after 4 p.m. on June 19 a pair of men flagged down officers in the 1100-block of Johnson Street.
They said one of the men, who is Black, was randomly struck by a man on the bus.
Video footage from the incident shows the victim entering the bus and heading towards a seat.
The suspect then stands up and strikes the victim without warning.
Other passengers then intervened and helped push the suspect off the bus.
Police say the victim’s injuries were non-life-threatening.
Acting on information from the public, officers were able to identify the suspect and arrested him on Thursday.
VicPD says the file remains under investigation.
