Police have released a sketch of the man sought in connection with a sexual assault in west Cloverdale last week.

Cpl. Bert Paquet said Wednesday that police continue to investigate the brazen daylight incident, which occurred as a young woman left a basement suite in the 16600-block of 63B Avenue.

“She was confronted outside (the) residence and during the assault, she was brought back into the residence,” Paquet said.

The 20-year-old victim fought off her attacker, who then fled on foot. The woman was treated at hospital for minor injuries.

The attack was reported at 10:30 a.m. May 2.

The assailant is described as a thin six-foot-two Caucasian man, age late 20s to early 30s, long, light-brown curly hair – described as greasy and dirty – a scruffy beard and brown eyes.

According to police, the man had a thin face with a large nose and yellow teeth, including a gold filling on the bottom left.

The man also had a large scar on his left eyebrow.

He was wearing light-coloured jeans, a black hoody, a dirty red baseball cap that was worn on the rim and muddy white sneakers.

Paquet said it is believed this was an isolated incident.

“There has been no… similar incidents reported, around those times, that location or since,” he said.

Investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to call at 604-599-0502 or, to remain anonymous, 1-800-222-8477.
