Detectives with the Vancouver Police Sex Crimes Unit are looking for witnesses and the man responsible for an attempted sexual assault that took place early Friday morning.
It happened right before 5:00 AM.
A 26-year-old woman was attacked as she tried getting into her car on East 7th Avenue near Windermere Street.
The attacker grabbed her, punched her, and tried tearing her clothing off.
She fought back and screamed, drawing the attention of several people in nearby homes, and the attacker ran away.
VPD Constable Brian Montague says police are now looking for witnesses.
“We expect there are some people out there we have not spoken to yet, canvassing for video, we have gathered quite a bit of evidence, but we continue to do that.”
Anyone with information is asked to call VPD.
