Burnaby RCMP have arrested an 86-year-old man who is suspected of sexually assaulted a young boy in a local mall food court.
Police say they received a number of tips from people after releasing a photo of the man on Sunday (Sept. 11).

Within hours of releasing the photo, police say they were able to identify the 86-year-old and arrest him. He was released with numerous conditions while police continue their investigation. No charges have been laid.
