Transit Police look for sex assault assailant
Transit Police are looking for a man who sexually assaulted a teenaged girl at the New Westminster SkyTrain station in the spring.
The 16-year-old, say police, was walking up the stairs toward the SkyTrain platform on April 24 when two men passed her as they walked down. One spoke to her and then sexually fondled her. The two men laughed and then left the station.
Surveillance footage shows the men went into the liquor store next to the station and also shows them initially boarding the train at Stadium station about 8:25 p.m.
The suspect is a described as a white male, about 25 years old, about five-foot-eight, 175 pounds with short light brown hair with a receding hairline. He spoke with a Russian accent and was wearing a dark, blue hooded sweatshirt with Hollister, California printed on the front, light-coloured jeans and black skater style shoes.
Anyone with any information on the man is asked to call Transit Police at 604-515-8300 or if they wish to remain anonymous, Crimestoppers.
