Police release sketch after teen girl sexually assaulted in Vancouver

Girl was pulled into the bushes after getting off bus

Police have released a sketch they believe may help them find a suspect after a teen girl was sexually assaulted in Vancouver last week.

The 14-year-old girl had told police she got off a bus on Kingsway and walked north along Miller Street about 5 p.m. Tuesday, when a stranger grabbed her and pulled into the bushes in Brewers Park just off Commercial Street.

He then sexually assaulted her, before running east through the park.

On Monday, police released a composite sketch of the suspect.

He is described as:

  • Caucasian man
  • medium build
  • five-foot-seven to five-foot-ten
  • late 20s to early 30s
  • possible weight between 160 and 200 pounds
  • dark brown eyes
  • an oval shaped face
  • short, brown wavy hair.

He was wearing a black rain jacket, dark blue jeans and black boots.

Anyone who saw anything or has dash cam footage or photos from the area between 2:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Tuesday is asked to call police at 604-717-0602 or, if they wish to remain anonymous, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
