Po­lice seek­ing wit­nesses

The Province - - NEWS -

Van­cou­ver po­lice are seek­ing wit­nesses to two at­tacks that hap­pened nearly a year ago in Stanley Park. In­ves­ti­ga­tors say there are wit­nesses who have in­for­ma­tion re­lat­ing to both cases who haven’t yet come for­ward.

Po­lice say on Nov. 16, 2016, shortly af­ter 2 a.m., some­one driv­ing past the north park­ing lot of Brock­ton Oval in Stanley Park saw an 82-year-old man alone in his car in ap­par­ent dis­tress. Of­fi­cers ar­rived to find the man suf­fer­ing from se­ri­ous, trau­matic in­juries. Less than three months later, 61-year-old Lubomir (Lubo) Ku­nik was on the sea­wall be­tween Sec­ond and Third beaches when he was at­tacked and killed.

“We know there are lots of ru­mours out there about the at­tacks, es­pe­cially amongst those who visit the trails at night. Ru­mour or not, we are ask­ing peo­ple to come for­ward with any in­for­ma­tion,” says VPD Const. Jason Doucette. Po­lice are warn­ing peo­ple who visit Stanley Park at night not to go alone and to re­port any sus­pi­cious be­hav­iour to 911.
