Man dies after Costco attack

An elderly man who was assaulted outside the Costco in downtown Vancouver last month has passed away as a result of his injuries.

According to police, the 86-year-old man never recovered from a head injury he suffered when he was assaulted on Dec. 20 in broad daylight on Expo Boulevard.

The victim hit his head on the ground after he was punched, police said at the time of the incident.

A 57-year-old man has been identified as a suspect. Police said they don't believe there is a further risk to the public. 

“This is an isolated and tragic incident and there is no concern for public safety,” Sgt. Jason Robillard of the Vancouver Police Department said.

No charges have been laid as a result of the incident. Police are continuing to investigate.
