POLICE – Man charged after woman assaulted in her vehicle

Police are looking for more victims and witnesses after a man was arrested Sunday in connection to a stranger sexual assault.

A woman reported she had been parked in her vehicle at Riverside Park in the early hours of Jan. 10 when a stranger approached her and said he had been injured and needed a ride. The woman stated she was sexually assaulted during the drive.

Officers quickly attended the area the suspect had been dropped off at and made an arrest.

“Although police cannot go into specifics at this time due to the ongoing nature of the investigation, it is believed there may be more victims and witnesses who have yet to come forward,” said Cst. Crystal Evelyn.

“We urge any witnesses or victims to please contact Kamloops RCMP.”

Cody Joseph, 24, of no fixed address in Kamloops, faces one count of sexual assault. He remains in custody. His next court appearance is Jan. 18, 2021.
