VPD makes arrest woman in hot-coffee assault

Vancouver – Vancouver Police have arrested a 27-year-old woman who allegedly threw coffee on a Tim Hortons employee last fall.

“We understand how traumatizing it is when people become victims of random and unprovoked attacks,” says Sergeant Steve Addison. “When these incidents happen, we do everything we can to fully investigate, gather evidence, and identify the people responsible.”

Vancouver Police first asked for the public’s help last fall, after a woman entered the Tim Hortons near Abbott and Pender Street on October 20 and threw hot coffee in an employee’s face for no obvious reason. Vancouver Police believe the incident was unprovoked.

Evidence collected during the investigation, including tips from the public, led police to identify a suspect, who was arrested in Vancouver on March 4.

Megan Russell has now been charged with assault with a weapon.
