The Vancouver Police Department is investigating a report of a sexual assault that occurred in the area of Vanness Avenue and Rupert Street on Tuesday evening.

“I can confirm that we are investigating the report of a sex assault in the area of Vanness Avenue and Rupert Street which occurred last night,” Jason Robillard of the VPD told Daily Hive via email.

VPD later confirmed in a release that just after 8 pm on May 30, an 18-year-old woman reported that she was sexually assaulted while canvassing door-to-door for donations in the area of Vanness Avenue and Rupert Street.

“During her canvass, she was pulled into a residence and groped by an unknown male,” said the VPD. “The woman fled the home and contacted police.”

The investigation is ongoing.
