According to police, the victim boarded a SkyTrain at Granville Station just before 10 a.m.
The suspect boarded the train and ignited an aerosol can, creating a small blowtorch, according to police.
Investigators allege the suspect demanded money from the elderly man then reached into the man’s pocket and took $5 before punching the victim in the face repeatedly.
