Police looking for thug who pointed gun at Surrey woman

SOUTH SURREY — The RCMP are looking to the public for assistance in identifying a man who pointed a gun at a woman about a month ago.

The 18-year-old was walking home from a friend’s house on Nov. 29 at 11:30 p.m. in the area of 152nd Street and 20th Avenue when an unknown male approached her. She hadn’t immediately noticed him because she was wearing headphones at the time but took them off because she heard somebody talking to her.

The man pointed what appeared to be a black handgun at her and told her not to run away.

Instead, the woman quickly fled the area and ran southbound on 152nd Street until arriving home.

The suspect was last seen near an entrance to a pathway about three metres west of 15140 20th Avenue on the south side.

Police have since been able to release a composite sketch of the man, described as South Asian, in his early 30’s, approximately 5’8”-5’9”, with short black hair and stubble on his face, wearing a black trench coat, black shoes, and possibly jeans.

Anyone with further information who has not already spoken to police is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvecrime.ca.
