Surrey RCMP looking for Guildford sex assault suspect

Suspect is hispanic or filipino, 17 to 20 years old, six feet tall and medium built with facial blemishes, short brown hair and brown eyes

Surrey RCMP release sketch of sexual assault suspect they are looking for

SURREY — Police need help to identify a young man accused of sexually assaulting a teenage girl in Guildford last Thursday afternoon.

The Surrey RCMP has released a sketch of the suspect, described as an hispanic or filipino, about 17 to 20 years old, six feet tall and medium built, with facial blemishes, short brown hair and brown eyes “set far apart.”

Surrey RCMP Cpl. Scotty Schumann said the girl, 17, was walking south along 152nd Street near 102nd Avenue at 3:25 p.m. when the suspect asked her for directions, “then grabbed her from behind and began to grope her.

“The victim resisted and yelled for him to get away,” Schumann said. Strangely, the attacker apologized but continued the assault until the girl punched him, and he ran away.

“Investigators are hoping someone will recognize the suspect from the composite sketch,” Schumann said. “Not only do we have the sketch but investigators will also be looking for surveillance footage from the surrounding businesses.”

Police ask anyone with information to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvecrime.ca
