CITY CENTRE — Police hope the public can help identify a man who allegedly sexually assaulted and stabbed a woman in City Centre early Tuesday morning.

Police received reports of a woman screaming at 2 a.m. Tuesday near 132nd Street and 105th Avenue.

After the initial investigation, police believe the victim met a stranger and together they walked into a secluded area, where she was allegedly assaulted and stabbed.

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

Police describe the suspect as a black male with a slight build, five foot ten to eleven inches tall and approximately 30 years old. He’s said to speak 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,” said RCMP Cpl. Scotty Schumann. “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 has conduct of the investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers to remain anonymous at 1-800-222-TIPS or Solvecrime.ca.
