Surrey Mounties are requesting the public’s assistance in apprehending a suspect in an assault and attempted sexual assault investigation.

On Feb. 1, between 1 and 2 a.m., a woman was picked up by a man near University Drive and 105 Avenue.

He drove into an alleyway at 132A Street and 100A Avenue and allegedly physically assaulted the victim, who managed to fight back enough to be able to flee.

The suspect is described as a male with a European look and olive-coloured skin, 20 to 22 years old,  5’8” to 5’9”, with dark brown curly hair with highlights, brown eyes, clean shaven, clean manicured hands, and  wearing a track suit at the time of the assault.

The vehicle is described as a newer-model grayish-purple Honda Civic.

“Although based on the preliminary findings of our investigation we do not believe that the public is at risk, we wish to release this information in an attempt to further advance our investigation and locating the suspect,” said Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet. “Any information regarding this case could be extremely useful to our investigators”

Anyone with information regarding this individual is asked to call the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or if you wish to remain anonymous, Crime Stoppers, at 1-800-222-8477 or www.solvecrime.ca
