After a lengthy investigation by the Surrey RCMP, a man has been arrested and charged for allegedly committing a violent sexual assault in 2012.
Late in the evening on June 2nd, 2012, a woman was attacked by a man in the 13300 block of 68th Avenue.
The man, not known to the victim, is alleged to have physically and sexually assaulted her while threatening to kill her. (Original news release sent out on July 24, 2012.)
As a result of evidence collected during the initial part of the investigation, officers from Surrey RCMP’s Special Victims Unit, along with assistance from the Lower Mainland Forensic Identification Section identified and arrested one suspect.
Timothy James WYSLOUZIL, 46 years old, of Surrey, has now been charged. WYSLOUZIL has been charged with 5 counts as follows:
- Sexual assault using a weapon
- Choking and/or suffocating while committing sexual assault
- Unlawful confinement
- Uttering threats
- Sexual assault causing bodily harm
WYSLOUZIL is currently in custody on these charges.
All complaints of sexual assault are treated very seriously and the victim’s welfare is paramount in investigations like this, says Corporal Scotty Schumann.
The diligence of our officers in their thorough approach to this investigation resulted in a significant arrest that will hopefully improve the victim’s peace of mind and the community’s safety.
