VPD arrest two wanted suspects in relation to Oppenheimer sex assault

Vancouver Police have arrested Jason Tapp and Nicole Edwards this evening relation to a violent sexual assault in Oppenheimer Park in April.

“This arrest was made possible by a heads up store clerk who recognized the couple from the earlier media release we put out,” says Constable Tania Visintin.

The two are responsible for a violent sexual assault where the survivor was directed at gunpoint into a tent where she was held against her will, beaten and sexually assaulted with a weapon for more than 15 hours, prior to her escape.
