A man has been arrested in connection to a series of sexual assaults in East Vancouver.
Vancouver Police issued a warning last week after three separate incidents where women were approached from behind.
Two were able to run away after being grabbed, one was pulled into nearby bushes and was sexually assaulted.
The incidents took place between 12:30 a.m. and 2 a.m. on April 26 in the area of East Van.
Nineteen-year-old Richmond resident Bilali Miyonkuru has now been arrested and charged with sexual assault causing bodily harm and robbery.
“The safety and security of everyone in our community is our top priority,” said Staff Sergeant Randy Fincham in a statement.
“Our investigators will continue to work tirelessly to hold individuals accountable for the victimization of others.”
He remains in custody.
