Police seeking witnesses
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.
