A man has been charged in the vicious knifing of a food delivery worker in Vancouver Chinatown, reports the Vancouver Sun.
Authorities charged Dennis Amanand Prasad with aggravated assault.
Several witnesses provided first aid as the victim managed to call 911 despite his life-threatening injuries.
“The victim suffered a number of stab wounds, including injuries to his chest and throat,” VPD Sergeant Steve Addison said in a statement to the Daily Hive.
As AsAmNews reported earlier this week, the victim is a 22-year-old Afghan refugee delivering food for Skip the Dishes.
“Public safety is a shared responsibility, and we always encourage people to call police immediately if they see a crime in progress or a person in danger,” said Addison to Voice On Line. “We commend the bystanders who comforted the injured victim after the attack, and others who provided eyewitness information that led to the quick arrest of a violent offender.”
