Pokemon Hunt ends in Sexual Assault Arrest

Her belief was that she was to meet this person to go and hunt Pokemon with him
said Sgt. Sarah Swallow with Delta Police.

A 31-year old man was arrested after he made unwanted sexual advances to a teenager. The 19-year old BC woman thought that they were only going to play the wildly popular Pokemon Go after agreeing to meet up with the older man. But the man had other things in mind and made some inappropriate gestures towards the teen. The 19-year old was able to remove herself from the situation and went straight to the police.

Authorities caution the public to be more vigilant when meeting strangers - whether it is to play Pokemon Go or meeting up with anyone from the internet.
