Police are hunting for a man who tried to break into the North Surrey home of 15-year-old girl last week.

Surrey RCMP are asking for public assistance in identifying a man who tried to push his way into the girl’s home in the 13300-block of Sutton Place on Friday.

At about 2:15 p.m., Surrey Mounties responded to a report of a home invasion.

A man approached the teen outside her home, spoke with her and attempted to force his way into her home.

A minor struggle ensued, and she called out for help.

The man then fled in his vehicle.

The teen is uninjured, but distraught.

“We do not believe this to be a random act and as a result have taken steps to ensure the victim’s safety out of an abundance of caution,” said Cpl. Scotty Schumann. “Anyone with further information about this individual or incident is asked to contact our investigators.”

The suspect is described as South Asian male, 25-30 years old, approximately 5’8” tall, with a medium build and unkempt black hair. He was wearing a long sleeved black jacket with blue jeans and sandals. His vehicle is described as an older model compact black car, possibly a Honda Civic.

Anyone with further 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 quoting file # 2015-159742.
