Man throws glass bottle at baby in stroller in Vancouver

VANCOUVER Police are investigating an attack on a baby in a stroller, and are appealing for the baby’s parents or guardians to call police.

Police received a report of a man throwing a glass bottle at the baby on June 27 around 4:30 p.m. at the intersection of Davie and Bidwell.

The caller indicated the bottle didn’t hit the baby, but the contents were splashed on both the baby and the adults who were with him.

“This attack appears to be completely unprovoked, and must have been terrifying for everyone involved,” said Constable Tania Visintin on Thursday.

“Based on the description given to police by the witness, a suspect was arrested nearby.”

A 31-year-old Vancouver man has been arrested and the investigation is ongoing.

“The family left before police arrived, so they were never identified,” said Visintin. “We are asking them to call police so we can advance the investigation.”

Anyone with information is asked to call investigators at 604-717-4022.
