asian women targeted in vancouver attacks

In Vancouver, police are warning the public about a group of thieves who are targeting Asian women in violent assaults along quiet streets and at bus stops: Vancouver attacks targeting young Asian women. Police say five related violent assaults occurred in the city's southeast end last week. The victims were all Asian women attacked from behind, and in every case the thieves wanted their purses. One victim described the suspects as "Indo-Canadians dressed in black sweaters and baseball hats." These attacks sound awfully similar to a rash of attacks at bus stops in Seattle last month. What's up with targeting Asian women? Sisters, be careful and watch your back.
