Transit Police are trying to identify a man who is alleged to have sexually assaulted three women on the SkyTrain over the Labour Day long weekend.

Around 11:30 a.m. PT Saturday, the alleged suspect boarded a SkyTrain headed for downtown Vancouver at Edmonds Station in Burnaby.

He moved behind a woman and began rubbing and touching her in a sexual manner before she moved away.

The suspect is alleged to have then touched at least two other women in a similar manner.

A witness took photographs of the alleged suspect, who is described as possibly a Hispanic male, 25 to 40 years old, five feet five to five feet eight inches tall, with short black hair.

He was wearing a white T-shirt with a grey emblem and an unknown word on the front, black shorts, sunglasses and Walkman-style earphones.

Transit Police say only the first victim identified herself to police and are asking the second and third victims to come forward by calling 604-515-8300.

Anyone with information regarding the identity of this person is asked to call Transit Police. They can call Crime Stoppers if they wish to stay anonymous.
