Woman Charged in Unprovoked Attack on Older Woman on Bus Fails to Appear in Court Yesterday
New Westminster – A 30 year old Vancouver woman who was arrested by Metro Vancouver Transit Police and charged after an unprovoked attack on a 67 year old woman on a 99 B-Line bus, failed to appear in Provincial Court in Vancouver yesterday, with a warrant now issued for her arrest.
Kimberly Amelia ANGUS has been charged with Assault after she lunged at a fellow bus passenger and delivered a flurry of punches on February 10, 2015, at 1:30 pm. Angus accused the victim of staring at her and yelled profanities at her. She then assaulted the victim, punching her and knocking her glasses off, causing several other passengers to intervene. Transit Police and Transit Security officers met the bus at Broadway and Commercial and took the suspect into custody. She is known to police.
The victim was traumatized and, as she was on her way to a doctor’s appointment, was taken to the doctor’s office by Transit Police for examination and treatment. She was limping and holding the back of her head.
The passengers who came to the assistance of the victim are to be commended for their actions. Without their intervention the victim’s injuries may have been more severe.
