Series of sex assaults near Coquitlam park are linked, police say
VANCOUVER -- Police are warning the public about a series of sexual assaults that have been committed near a Coquitlam, B.C. park since mid-December.
Authorities said there have been four incidents since Dec. 16 where a woman was touched or slapped by a man at Glen Park. In each case, the assailant ran away immediately after the assault.
"These incidents happened so quickly that no one has yet seen the suspect's face," Cpl. Michael McLaughlin said in a news release.
The suspect has consistently been described as a man with a slight build who is "below-average height," according to police. The suspect was also said to be wearing dark clothes, including a black jacket.
