BURNABY RCMP are asking for the public’s help in identifying three white racist bullies in relation to a disturbing incident which occurred in the Metrotown area on Saturday.
On Saturday, September 26, at 4:15 p.m., police responded to a report that a man had allegedly been racially abused and had coffee thrown on him near the Metrotown Skytrain Station in Burnaby.
The victim alleges that a suspect dressed in yellow (see photo), along with two other people began shouting remarks such as ‘Go back to your country!’ at him. The suspect dressed in yellow then approached the victim and poured coffee over his head.
The suspect is described as a white man in his 40’s, wearing a yellow hoody, beige pants and black hat.
The two other suspects being sought in this investigation are described as:
• Woman in her 30’s with a blonde ponytail, wearing a black hoody and grey sweatpants
• Man wearing a black vest, black pants, black shoes and a black hat worn backwards
“Discrimination in any form has no place in our wonderfully diverse city,” said Cpl. Mike Kalanj. “While we are thankful that the victim was not physically injured, we are mindful of the long lasting effects that incidents like this one can have on those being targeted, so it is hugely important that we identify these suspects quickly.”
