Vancouver Police say the Crown has now approved charges of attempted murder, aggravated assault, and assault after a series of bizarre attacks near Canada Place Monday night.
28-year-old Ana Jankovic remains in custody until her next court appearance on March 8th.
On Monday night, officials responded to calls of a young woman allegedly attacking pedestrians, and the suspect allegedly tried to throw a woman into the water off the pier at Canada Place.
The suspect was arrested a short time later.
While at hospital, VPD say she had dislocated her thumbs to get her handcuffs off, and also ate her hospital bracelet.
The suspect then allegedly kicked an 88-year-old woman lying on a nearby stretcher.
Constable Brian Montague had this to say about the accused at a press conference on Tuesday:
“There is no public safety concern because she is in custody, but, if she manages to get out though, she would be considered one of Vancouver’s biggest public safety concerns.”
The suspect is from Eastern Canada, and has a long criminal record.
