Girl attacked near high school

A teenaged girl was attacked on a path behind Clayton Heights Secondary in broad daylight last week, say Surrey RCMP.

On Sunday, July 27, the 16-year-old girl was walking through the area at around 2 p.m. when the suspect approached her from behind, said Cpl. Dale Carr, a spokesperson for the Surrey RCMP.

The man put his arm around the girl’s neck and she screamed. He let her go and ran away to the north.

Police foot patrols, including searching by Police Dog Services officers, failed to find him.

After speaking to the victim and other witnesses, Carr said the man is believed to be a white male in his mid-30s, 6’0” tall, with a medium build and dark hair.

At the time of the attack, he was wearing a rust or tan coloured tank top, black shorts, and sunglasses. 

A composite sketch of the man has been created, and police are asking anyone who recognizes him to call the RCMP.

Clayton Heights Secondary is located at 7003 188th Street near the Surrey-Langley border, west of Willoughby.

Anyone with information on the man should call the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or to remain anonymous, call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
