UPDATE: The police transit alleges that the suspect has been identified and arrested.
The transit police are looking for a man wanted in connection with an apparent hate crime that allegedly took place on SkiTrain on September 28th.
The police say it's around 2:30. on Friday, two young men, a married couple of the same sex, boarded the SkiTrain at Waterfront Station. As a couple boarded a train, a man kicked a young man's feet, the police say. The man then left the seat and "joined the younger man" aggressively, the police added.
The police say the victim was scared of the fear, because the suspect raised his hand as if he had hit him, while shouting unexplained and homophobic insults.

The other unidentified passenger pulled this suspect from the victim, while the victim's husband pushed the yellow tape for emergency cases on the train. Police say the suspect has again become aggressive towards the victim. There was further confusion in which the police say that the suspect struck a man in the face and that he got out of the glasses.
After the train pulled back to the Granville SkiTrain station, the police said the suspect tried to throw one of the men into his stomach, then left the train and spat on the face of another man. The suspect continued to profane professions and homophobic remarks against the couple as he left.
The pair was helped by SkiTrain's staff and taken to the hospital for minor injuries where they were later released.
