On September 20, a woman was onboard a SkyTrain travelling through Burnaby when she noticed that a man and a woman sitting close to her were not wearing masks.
The woman asked them if they had masks to wear, after which the female suspect allegedly struck the woman.
Both suspects then allegedly hit the victim before leaving the SkyTrain at Metrotown Station.
