Vancouver Police have arrested a year-old man they have identified as a person of interest in an incident where a woman was followed in Chinatown earlier this week. The man was arrested Friday morning after assaulting a different woman in downtown Vancouver, according to VPD spokesperson Const. Tania Visintin.
Earlier this week, year-old Jamie Coutts posted a video to social media in which she described being followed by a stranger for 40 minutes as she walked through downtown late Wednesday afternoon. The video shows a masked man walking a few metres behind her for several blocks until the woman approaches a group of people for help. Coutts says she was called by a police investigator Saturday afternoon to come look at pictures of men at a police station nearby. She says she didn't recognize any of the photographed men. No details were provided to Coutts about who the men in the photographs were and whether the police suspected them.
Coutts says it was the first she'd heard about the investigation since she reported the stalking on Wednesday and an officer was ased to the case. Since she posted the video to social media, more women have shared their experiences, she says.
One woman shared a picture of a man that had similar behaviours to the man that followed Coutts but is not the same person. VPD says the man they arrested Friday morning is being held in jail and that assault charges have been recommended to Crown counsel. Police also say the investigation into the stalking file is ongoing. Coutts says the experience of being followed is still top of mind for her.
I know that he's in my neighbourhood and life has continued but I don't necessarily feel like I'm able to keep doing the things that I want to do. Other than going to the police station to look at the photographs she hasn't left her home, she says.
Coutts, who is of Cree and Carrier descent, says the ordeal has been an unfortunate reminder of the hundreds of missing and murdered Indigenous women in Canada.
