SURREY RCMP investigators are seeking the public’s assistance to identify a South Asian male who is a suspect in a sexual assault case.
On July 9 at approximately 12 p.m., police responded after receiving a report of a sexual assault in Newton Athletic Park in the 7300-block of 128th Street.
Police were advised that a woman was walking through the park when she was grabbed from behind by an unknown male suspect. The woman was able to break free from the suspect, who ran from the area.
Police conducted patrols in the area, with assistance from the Integrated Police Dog Services, but drew a blank.
Investigators are now providing two composite sketches of the same suspect based on two separate witness statements.
The suspect is described as a South Asian male, in his mid-20’s, approximately 5’8″, with dark facial hair, wearing a red t-shirt, black shorts, black Jordan slippers, and black socks.
Anyone with further information which can assist this investigation is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or, if they wish to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or go to www.solvecrime.ca.
