Vancouver police release photos of a potential witness to a sexual assault
Vancouver police periodically release photos of "persons of interest", which can be a code word for someone suspected of committing a crime.
Today, however, the department took the unusual step of distributing a photo of someone who's being described as "a potential witness to a sexual assault".
A 37-year-old woman was attacked on August 3 at 1:30 a.m. near Moberly Street and West 6th Avenue after leaving a nearby Seven-11 store.
The photo above is of a white man, 35 to 45 years old, with short black hair.
He was in the store at the same time as the woman who was later assaulted, and police would like to contact him to see if he saw anything unusual.
