This weekend, the Vancouver Police Department announced a breakthrough in connection with three recent sex crimes along the Cambie corridor.
A 25-year-old man is in custody until he appears in court on Tuesday (May 20).
An officer arrested the man around 5:30 p.m. on May 16 after concluding that he matched the description given by victims of sexual assaults earlier that week.
The suspect has not been charged and his name has not been released.
In the first sexual assault, a 22-year-old woman reported that she was attacked around 5:15 p.m. on May 12 at West 37th Avenue and Cambie Street.
Two days later around 11 p.m., a 19-year-old woman was attacked at West 45th Avenue and Cambie Street.
The following day at 3:30 p.m., a 38-year-old woman was assaulted at West 42nd Avenue and Cambie Street.
Police issued a composite sketch of the suspect after the first attack.
