Sex assault suspect

Surrey Mounties are asking for public help in identifying a man suspected of sexually assaulting a teenage girl in Guildford last week.

On Thursday  (Jan. 28), police received a complaint from a 17-year-old girl who said she was sexually assaulted in the 10200-block of 152 Street.

At about 3:25 p.m., she was walking south on 152 Street, when she noticed a man following her.

He asked her for directions, then grabbed her from behind and began to grope her.

She yelled for him to get away, and he apologized, but continued the assault.

She then punched him, causing him to run.

She gave investigators a detailed description, allowing them to put together a composite sketch.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic or possibly Filipino male, 17-20 years old, 6′ tall, with a medium build, facial blemishes, short brown hair, and brown eyes set far apart.

He was wearing a red or grey and black hoody with the hood up, black shorts or possibly short pants, and black shoes.  The suspect was well spoken and had no accent.

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

Anyone with more information is asked 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.
