Arrested for bus sex assault

A Victoria man is in custody after a series of alleged sexual assaults on transit buses.

Police say a young woman came forward earlier this week about an interaction with a man on a BC Transit bus.

The report was shared online, prompting several other women to come forward, sharing similar stories. The suspect was found with the help of BC Transit staff, Saanich police and West Shore RCMP.

The man has since been released on bail, under a condition not to use buses or be at a bus stop.

“If someone on a bus is the victim of an inappropriate or illegal activity or sees something that is inappropriate please tell the driver immediately,” BC Transit told CTV News in a statement.

Police have forwarded a sexual assault charge recommendation to Crown counsel. The investigation is ongoing.

Police have asked anyone who has experienced a similar incident to call the Victoria police at 250-995-7654.
