METRO VANCOUVER – A young woman was grabbed and sexually assaulted early Saturday in the area of the 7000 block of Walker Avenue in Burnaby prompting police to issue a public warning.

Burnaby RCMP Cpl. Brenda Gresiuk said the 19-year-old woman was returning home after walking a friend to a bus stop just after midnight when she was approached by a man she didn’t know.

The man spoke to her briefly, then dragged her to a secluded area where he sexually assaulted her.

Gresiuk said the woman was hurt, but her injuries did not require hospitalization.

Police are now warning women to be careful and are on the lookout for their suspect, who is described as a dark-skinned man between 30 and 40-years-old, about five-feet five-inches tall with short curly hair.

Gresiuk said the suspect was wearing a dark jacket and jeans.

Anyone with who might have information about the crime is asked to call Burnaby RCMP at 604-294-7971.
