Android won't sync on a new Capacitor project

Hello, I’m very new to Capacitor. I just created my first Capacitor project using the Ionic Extension in VS Code, and iOS and Web will run just fine. However, when I try to sync my Android project, I get this error:

:heavy_multiplication_x: Copying web assets from dist to android/app/src/main/assets/public - failed!
:heavy_multiplication_x: copy android - failed!
[error] Error: EACCES: permission denied, rmdir ‘/Users/kaysonsylvester/Sources/Capacitor/capacitor-app/android/app/src/main/assets/public’

Any help or ideas? I haven’t done anything to this project yet so I’m not sure if I’m missing a step or something.
