Langley Mounties need help solving a sex assault last night in Aldergrove

A woman was accosted, forced into her Aldergrove home and sexually assaulted – now RCMP need help.

A brazen sexual assault last night in Aldergrove has Mounties issuing a warning for people to be vigilant.

A woman was grabbed from behind as she put out her garbage Tuesday night, about 9:30 p.m. in Aldergrove.

She was forced back into her home, where she was sexually assaulted by an unknown man, said Langley RCMP Cpl. Holly Largy.

“Police need your help to locate bedding removed from the crime scene,” she said.

The victim’s grey and silver purse was also believed taken.

“If either are located, please call the police immediately,” Largy said.

The victim was transported to hospital and is “understandably traumatized.”

She will be supported in every possible way by Langley RCMP client support and victim services, the Mounties said.

Langley’s serious crime unit have taken over the investigation and are engaging the assistance of multiple supports, including Lower Mainland Forensic Identification Services and police dog services, the behavioural sciences group, and officers from all units within Langley RCMP detachment.

Numerous officers will be canvassing the neighbourhood to collect any potential evidence and the missing sheets and purse.

Supt. Murray Power, the officer in charge of Langley RCMP spoke to the incident.

“It goes without saying that this incident is very disturbing,” he said.

“I can’t stress enough how important it is for residents to be hyper vigilant and always cognizant of their surroundings. If you see someone suspicious in your neighbourhood – call the police. This type of assault effects the safety and security of the entire community. Langley RCMP is treating this as a priority invetigation.”

Langley RCMP is asking anyone with information that might assist with this investigation to call the Langley tipline at 604-532-3398.
