VANCOUVER – Vancouver police have arrested six young people in connection with a series of robbery attacks on elderly men in the Downtown Eastside.

quote:
The attacks were brought to police attention by a resident of the area who had videotaped some of the violence.

Police say the group of suspects – five men and a woman – assaulted and robbed at least two elderly men.

Because the victims never came forward, police launched an undercover sting – called Operation Oldtimer.

They sent a decoy, disguised as a handicapped person, to the alley where the beatings had taken place. Within 35 minutes, their decoy was attacked, and the six were arrested.
