Vancouver police are seeking public assistance in identifying the man believed to have groped four women over three days near the city’s downtown core.

Images of the suspect were procured through days of canvassing the impacted neighbourhoods and speaking with apartment building concierges, police said in a Tuesday news release.
All four sexual assaults occurred after dark around BC Place and the Rogers Arena on April 27 and April 29. Each victim was between 25 and 40 years old and out for a walk when they were groped, police added.
