Vancouver Police are asking for victims and witnesses to come forward after a series of gropings in downtown Vancouver Tuesday night.
A 9-1-1 caller reported around 5 pm seeing a man on Davie Street, between Granville and Burrard Street, sexually assaulting a number of women by apparently groping them.
The suspect is being described as aboriginal, in his 30’s, 5’6″ tall and weighing about 160 pounds, with short black hair, brown eyes and with a small scar on his right cheek. He is being described as wearing a black winter coat, light blue jeans and white running shoes.
A man matching that description was arrested a short distance away, but unfortunately the women who were the victims of the alleged sexual assaults could not be found.
Anyone who has information about these sexual assaults is asked to call the Vancouver Police Sex Crimes Unit at 604-717-2634 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
