Two Transit Police officers are in isolation after a suspect intentionally coughed on them during arrest.
A suspect was being sought for threatening people with a knife around the New Westminster SkyTrain station on Saturday.
“Subject starts intentionally coughing and spitting at officers,” said a tweet by Transit Police chief officer Dave Jones. “This job is tough enough without this.”
Transit Police say a court order is being sought to have the suspect test for COVID-19.
