Vancouver police want sextrade workers to be aware of a violent sexual
assault on a woman with many years of experience in the business.

Spokesman Const. Jim Fanning said the woman felt the need to call
police because of the brutal nature of the sex assault, which occurred
last Sunday at 4 a.m. in the north lane of the 2700 block of Oxford
Street in east Vancouver. Despite years on the street, the victim was
disturbed by “the violent manner she was dealt with and the coldness
of the attack,” Fanning said.

The suspect was described as an Asian male, 5-foot-8, with a stocky
build, who was wearing a white T-shirt and jeans. He was driving a
mid-size, four-door sedan that was either silver or tan in colour.
