Vancouver Police investigate 2 sexual assaults

Darpan News Desk Vancouver Police, 23 Oct, 2020
  • Vancouver Police investigate 2 sexual assaults

Vancouver Police are investigating two sexual assaults that occurred near Main Street and 41st Avenue and are asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspect.

On October 16 the male suspect approached a woman from behind and groped her. He did the same thing to the second victim on October 19. After each incident the suspect ran away before police arrived.

“In both cases the woman were able to get to a place of safety and call police,” says Constable Tania Visintin, VPD. “Thankfully, these women were not physically injured but the emotional and mental distress they have to endure is concerning.”

The suspect is described as five feet five inches to five feet seven inches tall and has an average build. In one incident, he was wearing a black hat, a grey hooded sweatshirt, and black shoes with white soles. He was wearing a medical mask and was carrying a large umbrella.

In the other incident, he was wearing a royal blue Umbro jacket. “Investigators are looking to identify this male or anyone who may have information about this incident,” adds Constable Visintin.
