Metro Vancouver Transit Police are currently in the process of collecting tips after a hate crime incident on a TransLink bus took place a few days ago.

On Sunday evening, a woman on the 95 B-line was yelling at a group of teenagers for apparently not speaking English.


The woman apparently threatened to pull the teen girl by her hair and off the bus. Not to mention, when the woman was preparing to get off at her bus stop, she hit the teen in the face with her backpack as she exited, in a manner that rules it out as anything other than intentional.

The assault was caught on camera and a video of the incident can be found here.

In the aftermath of this incident, Transit Police are currently conducting a thorough investigation and says tips are slowing coming in.

Investigators would also like to speak with any witnesses who saw the incident unfold over the weekend.

If you have any information, please contact Transit Police by phone at 604-516-7419 or by text 877777.
