A 49-year-old man who had been illegally living in Canada faces deportation to South Korea following his arrest in connection with a number of groping incidents involving women on Vancouver-area buses.

The transit police learned of an incident involving a man allegedly inappropriately touching a woman on a bus on the 99 B-Line route.

This prompted an investigation resulting in plainclothes officers boarding the bus in order to catch the suspect.

Transit police officers reportedly nabbed the man while he was in the act on board the bus.

Initially, the man was evasive about his identity. This lead to transit police contacting the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) which eventually identified the man as Seung Woo Min, who had been illegally living in Canada since 1995.

Mins is  wanted in South Korea for embezzlement as well as for several other counts.

It was decided not to charge Seung in Canada and he was immediately handed over to South Korean authorities.
