Man assaults woman on Fort Langley dock

Langley Mounties are asking for the public’s help to identify a man who sexually assaulted a young woman in Fort Langley last month.

On May 16th, a 17-year-old student on a break from school headed to the docks near Glover Road and Billy Brown Road on the Fraser River waterfront, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.

She sat down on one of the small piers at about 12:15 p.m. to read a book.

A short time later, a man passed by on a bicycle. He returned about 10 minutes later, said Marks.

The man said he was called Lucas and asked if he could join her. She didn’t reply, and he sat down next to her. They talked for a short time, and without warning he reached out and touched her breast.

The young woman got up and left and the suspect headed west down a trail on his bicycle.

The suspect is Caucasian, about 19 years old, with a medium build and stands about 5’5” or 5’6”, with curly brown hair, facial stubble, and he may have a scar on his forehead. He was wearing a brown T-shirt.

Police are asking the public to study the composite sketch created by an artist working with the victim, and if they recognize the man, to call the RCMP.

Contact the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200, or to remain anonymous, call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
