Police are seeking the public’s help in identifying a man who has been deemed a person of interest after a woman was randomly sexually assaulted in downtown Vancouver.

The incident occurred on Sunday, October 9 just after 3 am when a 34-year-old woman was about to key her way into an apartment building near the intersection of Robson and Richards street in downtown Vancouver. After being groped from behind, she yelled and scared the male off, and he was last seen walking quickly towards Robson Street.
