Surrey RCMP have arrested a man they believe is responsible for a sex assault almost two weeks ago in North Surrey.

A 21-year-old man has been arrested and is facing charges related to a Feb. 1 assault on a woman in the City Centre.

Waheed Faiyaz has been charged with sexual assault causing bodily harm, utter threats to cause death, and overcoming resistance to commission of offence.

Faiyaz was identified through a combination of a good description given by the victim, surveillance video, and the recovery of physical evidence.

Several investigators from the Surrey RCMP Sexual Offence Unit credit the assistance of many other sections and “good old fashion police work” for what they call a successful arrest.

Faiyaz has been remanded in custody pending his next court appearance, scheduled for today (Tuesday).
