Vancouver – Vancouver Police have arrested a man in his 50’s after he allegedly assaulted three women near the Vancouver Public Library early Monday morning.

Just before 8 a.m., a woman walking in the 300 West Georgia Street was approached by a stranger who had his penis exposed. The woman had to walk into traffic to get away from him as she called 9-1-1. She was able to keep an eye on the suspect and reported to police as he had accosted a second unidentified woman, who fled after the suspect grabbed her leg. The suspect then followed and charged after a third woman, who sought refuge from the suspect in the office tower.

Officers quickly responded and arrested the suspect. Andrew Jack Kim has been charged with assault with a weapon and committing an indecent act. He remains in custody.

“The woman who was grabbed by the leg left the area before the police arrived, and investigators would like to speak with her,” says Cst Jason Doucette. “There could also be other people who were assaulted in the area who have not yet come forward. Please make a report if you’ve been a victim of crime.”

Anyone who may have witnessed the assaults, or has additional information about the suspect’s lewd behaviours in the area, is asked to call police at 604-717-0600.
