Vancouver police say a suspect has been apprehended in connection to a sexual assault investigation at a busy SkyTrain station recently.
Police say a woman in her mid-20s was sexually assaulted by a stranger while riding the escalator at Granville Station on Saturday afternoon.
“She quickly called 911, which allowed our officers to respond immediately and arrest the 26-year-old suspect while he was still nearby,” Sgt. Steve Addison said Monday. He said the victim was treated by paramedics and not seriously injured.
Police are recommending a charge of sexual assault to the BC Prosecution Service.
