Abbotsford Police seek witnesses to sexual assault


A female victim approached an Abbotsford Police sergeant patrolling the area at around 1:15 a.m. on Saturday in the area of South Fraser Way and the 2600-block of West Bourquin Crescent and stated that she had been sexually assaulted. The victim and the suspect are unknown to each other and the attack appears to be unprovoked.

The suspect is described as a white male, 30-35 years, about 5′ to 5′ 6″, sandy dark brown short hair, a scruffy patchy beard, and partially rotted teeth, and wearing a white t-shirt and black pants. The suspect fled the scene on a bicycle.

It is believed that several vehicles drove past the victim as she attempted to flag them down for help. The victim was transported to Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries and was released later in the day.

The Abbotsford Police Department would like to remind the public to practice awareness, avoid using your phone or headphones while walking at night and report suspicious persons or activity to the police.

Investigators are appealing for any witnesses or persons with possible dashcam footage or those that may have information about this investigation to contact the Major Crime Unit at 604-859-5225.
