On January 12th at approximately 10:20 pm, officers were dispatched to the 15300 block of 21st Avenue in South Surrey. A woman reported that she had been attacked and groped by a male. The victim screamed and pushed the attacker away and then he fled the area on foot. Patrol officers located and detained a man in the area with a similar description shortly after the incident. The subsequent investigation resulted in the release of that person with no charges.
The suspect was described by the victim as 5’7″ to 5’8″ tall, wearing a grey hoody and a grey looking back pack. Surrey RCMP Special Victims Unit officers are leading this investigation and are appealing to the public for any information that may lead to the suspect being identified.
