On November 20th  at 8:05 pm, Surrey RCMP was called to the 10200 block of 148th Street after a woman reported she was knocked to the ground and groped by an unknown man.  The suspect had followed the victim after she got off a bus at 104th Avenue and 148th Street just prior to assaulting her.

The victim’s screams caught the attention of nearby residents who scared off the assailant before police arrived. Thankfully the victim was not physically harmed. The suspect is described as a Caucasian male, approximately 35 years of age, with a medium build, and wearing a black hoodie with the hood up.

Surrey RCMP Special Victim’s Unit is leading this investigation. Officers are canvassing the route walked by the victim in an effort to locate other potential witnesses and surveillance video.
