Police want to speak with a witness to a sexual assault

SURREY — Surrey Mounties want to speak with a woman who is believed to have interrupted a sexual assault in Holland Park in North Surrey a few weeks ago.

Police said a woman was sexually assaulted there on Aug. 25 and the suspect is a muscular white man, about six feet tall, with short reddish hair. He wore a blue hat and black sweater.

“The assault was interrupted when another woman, who was walking her dog nearby, spotted the incident and asked if the victim needed help,” Cpl. Scotty Shumann said. “The suspect fled the scene and the victim was not able to get the witness’s name.

Schumann noted police had not issued a public bulletin at the time because they’d identified a suspect and no longer considered the public to be at risk.

Police ask anyone with information to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, quoting file number 2015-123850.
