Vancouver police say they are investigating the daytime sexual assault of a woman on the city’s east side.
Police said in a news release Friday that a lone woman, described as Asian and in her 20s, was waiting at a bus stop on 41st Avenue near Earles Street at about 11:30 a.m. Thursday, when an unknown man approached and struck up conversation.
But when the young woman realized she has left something at home and didn’t get on the bus, police said the man followed her back to her home where he attacked and sexually assaulted her inside.
The woman was able to call 911 after the man left.
