Vancouver police are asking to speak with witnesses to an assault that happened last week near the Burrard Street Skytrain Station.

Two men, who know each other, got into a fight around 7:30 p.m. last Wednesday on Melville Street near Burrard. One of the men allegedly attacked the other with a weapon, then fled.

The 47-year-old victim from Vancouver took a taxi to the hospital.
