VPD issues warning following series of attacks on women

Vancouver police are issuing a warning women to be cautious following three attacks since April 20 in Vancouver's South Granville, Oak and Cambie neighbourhoods.

Police say the assaults are sexual in nature and all involved women  of Asian descent. 

None of the three women knew their attacker. Police say they have all suffered significant emotional distress.

More to come
