The man accused of knocking down a mother and her toddler in Vancouver’s Chinatown in Canada reportedly kicked and dented a car before the incident early this month.

The incident occurred along East Cordova Street on July 9 when the driver, identified as Tami Higo, encountered the suspect who would later be identified as Shakwan David Kelly, 27.


Kelly was reportedly captured on a surveillance camera sprinting without a shirt on the sidewalk of Pender Street moments after his encounter with Higo. Surveillance footage shows Kelly hitting a mother and her toddler standing in front of a store and knocking them down.

The man was later arrested on Main Street and charged with mischief, assault and obstructing a peace officer. He was released on bail the following day under court conditions that he must not possess any weapons and not be intoxicated by alcohol or illegal drugs in public.

Despite being on bail, Kelly reportedly assaulted another victim at the Kettle Friendship Society on July 19.


Besides assaulting the mother and her toddler, denting Higo’s vehicle and assaulting a victim at the Kettle Friendship Society, Kelly has also been accused of assaulting two security guards at Vancouver General Hospital on June 19.
