Charges approved against man in Gastown sex act

Darpan News Desk Vancouver Police, 01 Apr, 2021 11:37 PM
  • Charges approved against man in Gastown sex act

Charges have been approved by the BC Prosecution Service today following a Vancouver Police investigation of a sexual act yesterday morning.

“This victim in this file did exactly what we advise everyone to do when they feel unsafe or afraid,” says Constable Tania Visintin, VPD. “She got to a place of safety and called police right away. From that, we were able to arrest the suspect within minutes.”

The female victim was walking back to her apartment near Carrall and East Cordova streets after being out for a run at around 7 a.m. on March 31. A male suspect approached her and used aggressive language. The suspect followed her to her building. She was able to get to safety, close the door behind her and call police. The suspect then allegedly exposed himself while acting aggressively.

Christopher Larsen, 31, has been charged with an indecent act and resisting or obstructing a peace officer in the execution of their duties.

Larsen remains in custody until his next court appearance.
