Gateway Station Assault

Transit Police are requesting help in identifying the perpetrator of a sexual assault that occurred at Gateway Station on the 6th of September, 2013. The victim was a young woman on student exchange from Japan, which illustrates the reality that International students are disproportionately victimized by the jerks who think they can get away with it. If you have any information on this man (described in the video as a white male, late 50’s, 6′ tall, 170 lbs., balding – short hair, clean shaven, wearing beige pants, possible green shirt, brown jacket, brown shoes and carrying a brief case) please contact the Transit Police at 604-515-8300 or text via 87-77-77.

  1. A good and well needed website.

    Safety on transit should be of prime concern and I wonder if roving conductors would bring a degree of safety on the metro system.

    In Europe, all metro trains, even automatic metros, have roving conductors and inspectors and every train must have an employee on board. So, if an indecent action happens, there is someone on the train to report it to.

    TransLink has over 170 full time attendants and an unknown number of part time attendants and one wonders where these people are?

    I’m afraid the transit police are next to useless on this issue as they are too far behind the incident to do any good.

  2. OMG!! I have had numerous encounters with this man. i showed the clip to my friend and she said she saw him put his arm around a middle aged black lady who clearly was uncomfortable with it. this happened on the train leaving gateway station sometime in October. the second encounter was at Guildford exchange where he approached me and wanted to give me a hug and kiss on the cheek. i made it clear to him that i valued my personal space. we engaged in small talk then he left. the third encounter with this man happened at surrey central station in November. he did the same thing. He put his arm around my shoulders while saying lets get on the train together. when we got on i backed off. he asked me for my phone number. i didnt give it to him. he got off at gateway station and i never saw him since. i hope he doesn’t get away anymore with what he keeps doing.

    • Hi there Lieen,
      Have you talked to us about this already? If not, I encourage you to call and make a report to 604-515-8300 or text 87-77-77. Like you said, we hope to keep him from doing these kinds of things anymore.
