A man faces more charges more than 30 years after a teenage girl was sexually assaulted in Vancouver.
On Tuesday (November 2), police announced that Joseph Richardson, 55, has been charged with sexual assault, assault, threatening, incarceration and theft under $ 5,000 in connection with the assault. The charges relate to an assault on February 16, 1989, in which a teenage girl was pulled into a car early that morning and sexually assaulted.
Art. Tania Visintin said police reopened the case in 2017 after receiving new information.
“We assigned a team of investigators to reconsider this case, and that team was able to identify a suspect,” Visintin said.
Richardson was arrested last month in Ottawa and remains in custody.
