RCMP: 20-year-old woman sexually assaulted at UBC
The University of British Columbia and the RCMP issued a safety alert last weekend after a 20-year-old woman was sexually assaulted on the Vancouver campus early Sunday morning.
The woman was reportedly walking to her residence at the 2700 block of Fairveiw Crescent, at 3:30 a.m., when a man approached her from behind, emerging from a stairwell, and put his hand underneath her skirt while trying to disrobe her. She managed to get loose, screamed, and the man fled.
He is described as a Caucasian, mid-to-late 20's, at 5'10 with a "medium build".
Anyone with information is advised to contact UBC or the RCMP (604-224-1322), or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
