Male tries to force 16-year-old girl in Surrey to go with him

SURREY RCMP on Wednesday asked the public to help identify the suspect in an alleged stranger assault on a 16-year-old girl.

On February 26, at approximately 9:15 a.m., the girl was walking in the area of 154th Street and 101A Avenue when she was approached by an unknown man. The man grabbed her by the arm as she walked by and attempted to walk her in the direction of a parked vehicle. The girl was able to break free from the man and get away.

The suspect is described as a male in his early 20s with tanned / reddish skin, approximately 6’ tall, and having a medium build. The male had a chisel-shaped jaw and pointy nose, and was clean shaven. He was wearing a grey hoodie with brownish pants and red shoes.

The vehicle is described as a small, silver early 2000’s model sedan, possibly a Kia or a Subaru.

Investigators are asking anyone who was in the area around 9-9:30 a.m. who may have dash-cam video to contact the Surrey RCMP.

Anyone with information or who witnessed this occurrence and has not already spoken with police is asked to call Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502. If you wish to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or
