A 31-year-old New Westminster man has been arrested for allegedly making sexual advances on a woman with whom he met to play Pokemon Go.
Delta Police say the 19-year-old woman arranged to meet the man, who was a stranger to her, on another online app to play the popular game, which was just recently released in Canada.
They met on July 13 just before midnight at the Annieville Lions Park in North Delta, says Acting Sgt. Sarah Swallow.
"When they met at the park, the man made some unwanted sexual advances," Swallow said. "She was able to leave the park and reported it to the police."
Police officers went to the park and found him there.
He was arrested and is facing a possible sexual assault charge.
Are these people typical of Pokemon Go players? Are they generally that stupid? What kind of girl meets a complete stranger in a park near midnight? And the perpetrator didn't have enough sense to leave the park after the girl got away. There's not much chance either of these people will become rocket scientists.
Folks, someone you meet online playing Pokemon Go, or anything else, is not your friend! Be careful, or at least use a little common sense.
