Vancouver police investigate West End assault

Vancouver police are asking for the public’s help in tracking down a person of interest in a West End assault Saturday, who was photographed by a security camera.

Just before 3 a.m., a woman reported being attacked after she was followed by a man into her apartment building on Bute Street near Pendrell Street. She did not know him and it appears to be an isolated incident, but investigators believe it was sexually motivated, the police said in a news release.

The man is described as white, in his 20s or 30s, with a slim build, short dark hair and dark facial stubble. He was wearing a burgundy toque, a black zip-up jacket and blue jeans. He may have been walking with a limp.
