Vancouver police are seeking the public’s help in identifying a man in connection with a high-profile sex-crime investigation.
The VPD’s media-relations department released a photo of a man who’s described as a “person of interest” in two cases of sexual assault of women who departed transit vehicles at night in East Vancouver.
On October 29, an assailant wearing a surgical mask grabbed a woman from behind after she hopped off a bus on Victoria Drive near East 64th Avenue.
The woman was groped before fleeing the scene.
On November 15, a man wearing a surgical mask groped another woman after she left the SkyTrain at Nanaimo Station.
In both instances, the man was described as an Asian between 20 and 30 years old and wearing dark-rimmed glasses.
