A woman is being treated for stab wounds after being sexually assaulted in Whalley.

Surrey RCMP were called by residents in the 13200-block of 105 Avenue reporting they heard a woman screaming.

At 2 a.m. Tuesday (Feb. 2) the woman met a black man not known to her and walked with him to a secluded area.

She told police the suspect then sexually assaulted her and stabbed her before fleeing.

A nearby Good Samaritan drove her to the hospital where she is recovering from serious but non-life threatening injuries.

The suspect is described as a black male with a slight build, 5’10” to 5’11”, and approximately 30 years old.

He speaks with a slight accent and was wearing black pants and a black hoodie.

“We do not believe there is a risk to the general public,” Surrey RCMP Cpl. Scotty Schumann said in a press release. “However, we are warning vulnerable and at risk women to be mindful of their personal safety. Our investigators will be working very hard to identify this suspect and bring him before the courts.”

Surrey RCMP Special Victims Unit (SVU) is spearheading this investigation and is requesting anyone with more information 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.
