The Surrey RCMP is looking for help from the public after a woman was assaulted while walking in a park in the southeast area of Surrey on Wednesday evening. Police are appealing for any information that may lead to the identity of a possible suspect.

On September 13th around 6:15pm the Surrey RCMP received a report from a woman who was walking her dogs on a trail in Buckley Park in the 19600 block of 48th Avenue. The middle aged woman reported that a male had attempted to assault her. The woman was able to fight the male off and retreat to safety. The woman was not physically injured however she is understandably upset by the incident. The male was last seen leaving the area on foot.

The suspect is described as a Caucasian male in his late teens, 5’8” tall with a skinny build, and chin-length, shaggy dark brown hair. He was seen wearing a black hoodie and black track pants with a white stripe down the leg.

The Surrey RCMP General Investigation Unit and Special Victims Unit are investigating the incident. Police do not believe that this incident is related to the recent assaults on youth that occurred on September 8th and September 6th.

Anyone with more information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers if you wish to remain anonymous at 1-800-222-TIPS.
