Vancouver Police say it’s too soon to tell if the two alleged assaults that happened last night in Vancouver’s west side are related to four others they are investigating in that area.
A 16-year-old is in custody, but has not yet been charged.
The young man is not known to police.
Six assaults on women in less than two weeks
Sergeant Randy Fincham says these two assaults, plus another four they are investigating are rare, but still traumatizing for the victims.
In the 10 p.m. hour last night, two women were approached within 15 minutes of each other by someone they say attempted to grab them.
Both managed to get away.
The other four assaults happened on February 24, 26, 29 and March 3rd.
