Transit police in Metro Vancouver are looking for two women who "viciously" attacked another woman in September.

The two suspects were yelling racial slurs and harassing non-Caucasian passengers at the Granville SkyTrain Station just after midnight on Sept. 19, said a news release.

When another woman politely asked them to stop, she was punched, knocked to the ground, kicked, and grabbed by the hair.

She managed to break free and left the area to call police. The victim suffered cuts and bruises, a black eye, and injuries to her arm that required treatment in hospital.
