      A Vancouver police officer wound up being assaulted during an attempt to remove a passenger engaging in sexual activity on a bus in Fairview yesterday.

      According to the Vancouver Police Department (VPD), shortly after 6 p.m. on December 5, Vancouver police responded to a call near Broadway and Heather streets to help transit security remove a 32-year-old male passenger who allegedly had been masturbating on a bus.

      When the passenger refused to leave the bus, he became aggressive and a physical altercation developed between him, a VPD officer, and two transit security officers.

      The male suspect hit the VPD officer in the face and then grabbed the officer’s gun.

      Although the suspect was unable to remove the gun, he then managed to take the officer’s baton.

      Ultimately, the man was arrested for assaulting and disarming a police officer and taken into custody.
