SkyTrain sex assault suspect turns self in
Thanks to extensive media coverage, a 38-year-old Burnaby man has turned himself in to police in connection with three alleged sexual assaults on a SkyTrain.
"Sexual assault charges are pending," say Transit Police in a press release.
The incidents happened at about 11:30 a.m. on Aug. 31 after the suspect boarded SkyTrain No. 139 at Edmonds Station.
He moved behind a woman and started touching her inappropriately, causing the victim to move away. He was then seen to approach at least two other women who he rubbed and touched in a sexual manner.
A witness took photos of the suspect, which were then widely distributed through the media.
Only the first victim identified herself to Transit Police who still want to speak to the second and third victims to get their statements. They are asked to call 604-515-8300.
