Police have released a sketch they believe may help them find a suspect after a teen girl was sexually assaulted in Vancouver last week.
The 14-year-old girl had told police she got off a bus on Kingsway and walked north along Miller Street about 5 p.m. Tuesday, when a stranger grabbed her and pulled into the bushes in Brewers Park just off Commercial Street.
He then sexually assaulted her, before running east through the park.
