SURREY RCMP are warning the public as they are investigating a break and enter and sexual assault that occurred in the City Centre area early Thursday morning.
On April 5, at approximately 4 a.m., a male allegedly broke into a residence in the 10700-block of 132A Street and sexually assaulted a female youth who was home at the time of the break-in. The suspect fled out the back door after being confronted by another resident of the house. The female victim did not sustain any physical injury but is understandably shaken.
The suspect is described as a white or light skinned Indigenous male in his 20s or 30s, who is approximately 5’5″ to 5’6″ tall and very thin, with short wavy black hair. He was wearing baggy blue jeans and a grey zip up hoody at the time of the offence. The suspect may also have facial injuries or markings.
The Surrey RCMP’s Special Victims Unit is investigating the incident.
At this time this incident is not believed to be related to the recent sexual assault in Aldergrove as the suspect descriptions are different.
Surrey RCMP are asking the public to be vigilant, keep their residence secure and report any suspicious activity.
Anyone with more information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
If they wish to remain anonymous, they should contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvecrime.ca.
