SkyTrain sexual assault victim sought by transit police

Metro Vancouver Transit Police want the victim of a recent sexual assault to contact them.

On Wednesday evening around 7:30 p.m. PT, a young woman got off the SkyTrain at Broadway Station and reported to a SkyTrain attendant that she had been sexually assaulted.

She identified the suspect who was still on the train. At 7:55 p.m., transit police arrested a 47-year-old New Westminster man at Patterson Station in Burnaby. Police say he is known to them.

The victim left before officers were able to arrive and take her statement. Now, police say they need her to come forward to speak to investigators.

She is described as a black female, between 23 and 25 years of age, well dressed and in all dark clothing.

Police are asking the victim to call 604-515-8300. They are also asking anyone who may have witnessed the incident or anyone who may have information about the victim, to call the same number.
