VIDEO: Good Samaritan stabbed while trying to help a homeless man in Vancouver

Vancouver Police are trying to identify men involved in the stabbing of a Good Samaritan last month.

Police shared a shocking video of the incident, which shows a man intervening after witnessing another man steal a homeless man’s belongings.

The incident happened on Jan. 14 around 11 p.m. near the entrance of the Granville Street SkyTrain station.

In the video, three men gather next to the homeless man, who is seated on a bench. One man appears to film while another first takes the hat off his head, then a bag that was on the ground next to him.

However, as the alleged thief tries to run away, a witness in a red hoodie stops him, grabbing the stolen bag. A confrontation ensues, resulting in the Good Samaritan being stabbed.

Police said he was treated in hospital for serious injuries.
