Stanley Cup rioters sentenced for attacking Good Samaritan
Two Stanley Cup rioters were sentenced to spend several months in jail for beating up a Good Samaritan outside the Hudson's Bay store in downtown Vancouver.
Nathan Blake, 24, was convicted of participating in a riot and assault, and sentenced to eight months in jail for the attack on Robert MacKay. Robert Timleck, 24, was sentenced to 9½ months for participating in a riot and the attack on MacKay.
MacKay was called a hero and honoured by the department store after he was identified on video trying to hold back a crowd attempting to break into The Bay during the 2011 Stanley Cup riot.
Video posted on the internet showed a number of people swarming him, kicking and punching him, pushing him to the ground and dousing him with bear spray.
