Police release video surveillance photo of sex assault suspect

Perpetrator still at-large after Surrey realtor attacked at open house last month.



Surrey RCMP has released a photo, obtained from video surveillance, of the suspect in a sexual assault on a realtor that occurred last month in North Surrey.

At about 4:10 p.m. on Saturday, April 30, a female real estate agent was sexually assaulted while holding an open house at a residence in the area of 128 Street and 92 Avenue. The woman was able to fight off the attacker, who was unknown to her.

The suspect is described as a South Asian man in his late 20s to mid-40s, 5’5″ to 5’8″, with brown eyes and a dark well-groomed beard.

He was wearing dark-coloured pants and a light-coloured shirt at the time. He had a white turban on and spoke with an accent.

Investigators have conducted a number of investigations, including speaking to multiple area residents, canvassing for video surveillance, and conducting a forensic examination.

This is a top priority for the Surrey RCMP’s Special Victims Unit, police said.

Surrey RCMP has liaised with the real estate industry to ensure that safeguards are in place to help protect realtors.

These include taking precautions and having a buddy system. More information is available for realtors through the British Columbia Real Estate Association’s website at www.bcrea.bc.ca
