Vancouver Police Release Composite Sketch Of Sexual Assault Suspect

Vancouver Police today released a composite sketch of a suspect in a sexual assault investigation and are asking anyone who may recognize the suspect to call police.

At around 5 p.m. on November 27, a 14-year-old girl got off a bus on Kingsway and walked north on Miller Street. As she made her way through the neighbourhood, she was grabbed from behind by an unknown male and pulled into bushes in Brewers Park, just off of Commercial Street. The suspect sexually assaulted the victim before running east through the park.

The suspect is described as a Caucasian male in his late 20s to early 30s. He is 5’7″ to 5’10” tall with a medium build. He is believed to weigh between 160 to 200 pounds. He has dark brown eyes, an oval-shaped face, and short, brown, wavy hair that is cut short on the sides. The suspect was wearing a black rain jacket, dark blue jeans and black boots.

Investigators are still seeking dash-cam footage from anyone who may have been driving in the area between 2:30 and 6 p.m. on November 27.

Anyone who recognizes the suspect in the composite sketch, or who may have any information about this crime, is asked to call detectives in the VPD’s Sex Crimes Unit at 604-717-0602 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
