Vancouver Police are renewing their appeal for victims and witnesses to come forward in a sexual assault investigation involving 46-year-old Kevin Alexander Roberts, also known as “Drifter.”

Roberts, a resident of Prince George, was arrested by police recently, for “historical” sexual offences involving a young girl.

He is facing several charges including sexual assault, sexual interference, sexual assault with a weapon, invitation to sexual touching, assault and assault causing bodily harm.

The victim, who is now an adult, reported the crimes to the Vancouver Police. VPD believe there are more survivors who would have been between the ages of four and 18 at the times of the incidents.

“These types of crimes are extremely traumatic and survivors live with the life-long impact,” said Sgt. Jason Robillard of the VPD.

“We are providing this information and a photo of the suspect, with hopes that we will uncover more information and help prevent this from happening to someone else.”

Roberts worked as a truck driver in BC and Alberta. He also worked as a school bus driver in the Prince George area and has been known to have a transient lifestyle.

On Wednesday, November 28, police said they believe there are additional survivors, who would be between the ages of four and 18 at the time of the offences.

Anyone with information about him to call the VPD’s Sex Crime Unit at 604-717-0600 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
