Coquitlam Mounties are releasing a photo of the man charged with strangling a woman near the Hoy Creek Trail this month.
Police arrested Pouria Sahragard, 32, in a nearby store following an attack on Sept. 7 near the trail at Glen Drive and Johnson Street at around 7:45 p.m.
Last week, Sahragard was charged with assault with a weapon and assault by choking.
He remains in custody until his next appearance at Port Coquitlam Provincial Court.
In a statement issued today, Sept. 22, RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Alexa Hodgins said Sahragard was on court-ordered release conditions when the assault happened.
And they are showing his image publicly in the hopes that people with information about him can come forward to assist investigators.
"We also believe that there may be additional victims that have not spoken to police," said Insp. Darren Carr, acting Officer in Charge of Coquitlam RCMP, in a news release.
"We encourage anyone with information to contact Coquitlam RCMP at 604-945-1550."
In July, the Tri-City News reported about a tenant who lives close to the Coquitlam trail warning her neighbours to be cautious of a lurker.
She was approached along the trail by a man with a weapon who was naked below the waist.
Anyone with more information on the Sept. 7 assault is asked to call Coquitlam RCMP at 604-945-1550 and quote file number 2023-24214.
