File # 2016-12372

Surrey RCMP is asking for the public’s help in identifying a male who sexually assaulted a teenage girl in the Guildford area.

On January 28th police received a complaint from a 17 year old girl who was in the 10200 block of 152nd Street. At approximately 3:25pm, the victim was walking southbound on 152nd Street and noticed a male following her. The unknown male asked her for directions then grabbed her from behind and began to grope her. The victim resisted and yelled for him to get away. The suspect apologized but continued the assault. The victim then punched the suspect causing him to flee the scene.

The victim was able to provide investigators with a detailed description and a composite sketch was produced.

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.  The suspect 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, says Cpl. Scotty Schumann. 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.
