Senior assaulted in apt.

Police are looking for a suspect after an 89-year-old was allegedly assaulted in her apartment Thursday.

Police said the victim was alone in her Lynn Valley apartment when a man dressed as a construction worker came to the door and asked to use the washroom.

After she let him in, the suspect allegedly exposed his genitals and assaulted the woman.

"Given the serious nature of the crime, both the North Vancouver RCMP Serious Crime and Special Victim Units have put their resources into solving this investigation," Const. Brett Cunningham said. "Fortunately the victim was not seriously injured and remains in good spirits even after being victim to such a disturbing offence."

The suspect is between 20-30 years old and approximately six feet tall with a slim build, dark hair, dark eyes and olive skin.

Anyone with information on the man's whereabouts is asked to contact investigators at 604-985-1311 and quote file number 2018-2583.
