Surrey RCMP release Langley bank photos of a sex assault suspect

The police have received tips in the case of sexual assault against a 70-year-old woman.

The Surrey RCMP have released bank surveillance photos from Langley of a man considered a suspect in the sexual assault of a 70-year-old woman in her Cloverdale home on Wednesday.

Shortly after noon Aug. 12, a woman returned to her South Surrey home after being out for the morning.

Shortly after she arrived home, a male entered the home in the 16700 block of 28th Avenue and presented a weapon. He confined the woman by restraining her.

The male demanded cash and other items, however, the woman was not able to meet his demands, RCMP said.

“The male proceeded to both physically and sexually assault the woman causing significant injuries. The male eventually departed with only a few items,” said Surrey RCMP Sgt. Dale Carr.

She was able to free herself from the restraints shortly before 2 p.m. and took refuge at a neighbour’s home where she called the police.

“The woman is in hospital being treated for her non life-threatening injuries,” he said.

Security cameras at the Brookswood RBC, located at 20059 40th Ave. show the suspect using the ATM at approximately 1:57 p.m. on Aug. 12.

“The Surrey RCMP has released these photographs of the suspect to seek the public’s assistance in furthering the police investigation into these serious crimes,” says Cpl. Scotty Schumann.  “We’re hopeful someone will recognize this man and notify police.”

Schumann added the man wasn’t using his own bank resources, otherwise identification would have been straight forward.

The pictures show the suspect who is believed to be a Caucasian male, 20 to 30 years old, 5’10” to 6’0” tall, medium build, clean shaven, no visible marks, scars or tattoos.

The suspect at the time of the offence had shoulder length, light coloured hair that may not be real.

The suspect spoke without any distinguishable accent.

The Surrey RCMP Serious Crime unit and Lower Mainland District Forensic Identification Team are working together on this case and released the information so the public could be wary.

“The smallest bit of information may assist this investigation in swiftly capturing this male,” Carr noted.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, their nearest police force or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvecrime.ca.

“We have had several tips and the detectives are following up,” Schumann said.

He encouraged anyone who thinks they might have information in this case to contact the police.
