Surrey RCMP are asking for anyone with information on the whereabouts of Stephen Thomas Morse prior to his arrest Sept. 4 to call the detachment at 604-599-0502.

More witnesses sought in South Surrey assault

Police continue to appeal for information on the actions and whereabouts of Stephen Thomas Morse in the weeks leading up to his arrest.

Following last Friday’s arrest of a man accused of brutally attacking a South Surrey senior, police are appealing for anyone with information on the whereabouts of Stephen Thomas Morse in the days prior to Sept. 4 to contact them.

Police released Morse’s photo Tuesday, and received tips as a result, Cpl. Scotty Schumann said Thursday.

Morse, a 42-year-old Langley man, is charged with aggravated sexual assault, forcible confinement, break-and-enter, robbery, disguise with intent and use of imitation firearm in connection with the Aug. 12 attack.

On that day, a man entered a Grandview-area home, presented a weapon and restrained the 70-year-old resident, physically and sexually assaulting her when she wouldn’t comply with demands.

Morse was identified as a person of interest in the “repulsive” crime early last week, and was under surveillance until his arrest. He was to appear in Surrey Provincial Court Thursday morning.

Anyone with information regarding Morse’s actions may contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
