The striking image taken by Getty photographer Rich Lam has been splashed around the world over the past two days and on Friday, the couple was identified.
Lying in the middle of a downtown street in Vancouver amid the fracas, fires and looting was Canadian Alex Thomas and her Australian boyfriend Scott Jones, seen cradling her in his arms and brushing his lips against hers.
Scott's father Brett Jones told public broadcaster CBC he recognised his son in the picture circulated around the world over the internet, and in newspapers.
In an interview from his home in Perth, Australia, he said Scott, an aspiring stand-up comedian, was attempting to console Alex after she had been knocked down by police.
They were caught in the violence after leaving the hockey arena where the NHL's Boston Bruins beat the Vancouver Canucks 4-0 to win the Stanley Cup.
