File # 2017-144957

Surrey RCMP is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying an alleged suspect in a pair of sexual assaults that occurred in the Clayton Heights area of Surrey within seven days of each other.

On October 10th (see previous release) and October 17th (see previous release), two different young girls were groped in separate locations by an unknown male before escaping to safety. In both instances the victims were able to provide descriptions of the assailant. Subsequent neighbourhood canvassing by officers of the Surrey RCMP Special Victim’s Unit (SVU) located other witnesses and surveillance video of the alleged suspect. The updated description of the suspect is a Caucasian man, 30-40 years old, 5'10-6'0, 170-180lbs., with brown hair, thick eyebrows, full lips, long ears and lobes, facial hair and possibly wearing glasses.

Investigators are now releasing stills from the surveillance video, captured on October 10th.

If you recognize any of the persons depicted in the stills or sketches, investigators want to hear from you right away, says Corporal Scotty Schumann. Our highly trained officers are working hard to solve these crimes.

Anyone with more information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
