White Rock man charged with sexual assault on bus
A White Rock man has been charged with sexual assault after a 21-year-old woman was confronted on a Coast Mountain bus last week.
Sebastian Ramon Lopez, 37, was arrested and released after reports that a man was "rubbing up against a… passenger in a sexual manner" at the Surrey Central bus loop.
The Jan. 8 bus was travelling from White Rock.
In a news release Monday announcing the charges, Metro Vancouver Transit Police say they have made it a priority to target sexual offenders in 2014, and have launched a non-emergency texting service that allows public-transit users to message in reports. The number is 87-77-77.
