A repeat sex offender is in custody after allegedly assaulting a woman on bus in Coquitlam.
Transit Police say the man ran his hand up the woman’s leg then showed her pornographic images on his phone.
She moved away from him, only to have him make a lewd comment about her as she got off the bus.
Transit officers quickly tracked down a suspect — a man they recognized from similar situations in the past.
Jason Steven Taylor, 45, has three previous convictions for sexual assault on the transit system, and now faces two more counts.
