Police seek suspect after Kitsilano sex assault


CTV is reporting that Vancouver police are asking for help to find a man they say sexually assaulted a woman in her Kitsilano apartment building Sunday.

The woman was leaving her building in the 2000-block of West 8th Avenue around 11:30 a.m. yesterday when she noticed a man loitering in the lobby, Const. Lindsey Houghton said.

The women returned home a few moments later. As she got off the elevator on an upper floor the man appeared suddenly and grabbed her breasts.

“She screamed and pushed him away and the man fled down a stairwell,” Houghton told reporters at a press conference Monday.

The suspect is described as a white man between the ages of 17 and 25. He has a very thin build and a clean shaven face. He was wearing a red hoodie-style sweater and baggy pants and appeared to be nervous or shaky.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call the Vancouver Police Sex Crimes Unit at 604-717-2634.
