According to Vancouver police, a 26-year-old sexual-assault victim did everything right late at night on June 11.
It occurred near the intersection of Hornby and West Hastings streets just after midnight.
On June 24, the VPD released video of the male suspect, who had grabbed the woman from behind.
“She fought off her attacker, got to a safe place, and called 9-1-1,” Const. Tania Visintin said in a news release. “Her quick actions allowed investigators to secure important evidence, including the video we are releasing today.”
The suspect is believed to be in his 40s. He is seen in the video running south on Hornby Street.
“This was a very serious incident, and because the suspect is still at large we have concerns for the public’s safety,” Visintin said. “We’d like to identify the man in this video and we’re asking anyone who recognizes him, or anyone who saw the assault, to call us right away and speak with investigators.”
Anyone with information is being asked to call 604-717-0603.
