Do you recognize this man?

VANCOUVER – Transit Police are looking for a man they say “aggressively groped” a young woman on a Coast Mountain bus.

Police say the incident took place on Friday, July 11, at about 1:15 p.m. A young woman boarded the #319 bus at the Scottsdale Exchange and sat at the back.

Shortly after she saw another passenger yelling at a man to stop staring. When the bus got to the Newton Exchange and the young woman stood up to get off the bus, she says she felt herself being groped from behind.

When she looked she saw it was the same man the other passenger had yelled at earlier.
