The 47-year-old victim from Vancouver took a taxi to the hospital.

“This is a busy area with people coming and going from the Skytrain and local businesses,” says Const. Jason Doucette. “We understand a couple of people may have tried to assist, and we’d like to hear from them.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact police.
