    This is right by the high school I went to. I walked on that stretch of road so many times and am extremely saddened and concerned that this occurred in a neighbourhood I lived in. Hope the suspect is caught quickly.

    "The Vancouver man was taken into custody for questioning, but has not yet been charged.

    The first attack – described as “brazen and bold” – happened in a busy area at about 5 p.m. Monday. The attacker jumped out of some bushes near the intersection of Cambie and 37th Avenue and threw a 22-year-old woman to the ground and sexually assaulted her"

    " A 25-year-old Vancouver man has been charged in a string of sex attacks committed along the Cambie Street corridor last week.

    Daniel Simmon Ghoukassian appeared in court Tuesday on three counts of sexual assault. He remains in custody pending another court hearing Wednesday.

    The accused’s Facebook page describes him as “spiritual” and features large text reading, “People will let you down God never will.” It also identifies Ghoukassian as a student at the British Columbia Institute of Technology."
