A sketch of UBC's sexual assailant

RCMP release sketch of UBC sexual assault suspect

The man is suspected to have committed six assaults at UBC's Vancouver campus since April, the latest on October 27.

The RCMP have released a sketch of the man they suspect to have committed six sexual assaults recently at UBC’s Vancouver campus.

He has been identified as a Caucasian male “with slightly darker or olive skin, possibly tanned,” in his late 20s or early 30s. The RCMP says he is slim build, between 5’8″ and 6’2″, and with short, dark hair.

“Investigators have been working with all the victims and witnesses in the six incidents on a composite of the suspect,” said Sgt. Peter Thiessen on Tuesday from the RCMP’s division in Surrey. “We believe this is the best representation of a collective suspect description.”

The latest assault occurred on October 27, and three others occurred this fall from September 28 to October 19. The first two assaults occurred in April and May of this year.

Last week, the RCMP said for the first time that they suspect the same assailant to be behind all these attacks, and this fall’s publicly reported assaults have involved a man sneaking up behind a young woman, grabbing or groping her, and trying to drag her away.
