“An alert security guard at Pacific Centre Mall recognized the suspect from yesterday’s media release and called police immediately,” says Constable Tania Visintin, VPD.
Yesterday, a 22-year-old woman was approached by a man while waiting for a bus near Knight Street and East 57th Avenue. The man propositioned her for sex, and when she declined, he kicked her from behind and knocked her to the ground.
The 21-year-old suspect remains in custody at this time, the Vancouver Police said, adding that the investigation is ongoing.
