Transit Police seek public’s assistance in identifying sexual assault suspect

New Westminster – Metro Vancouver Transit Police are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a suspect who allegedly sexually assaulted a woman at a SkyTrain Station in Surrey, late last year.

On Thursday, August 17, 2023, just after 6:00 a.m., a woman entered Surrey Central SkyTrain Station and was making her way up to the platform. As the woman stepped onto the escalator the suspect followed closely behind her. While they were on the escalator, the suspect then allegedly sexually assaulted the victim.

“Investigators have spent months exhausting every possible lead in this incident and are now requesting help in identifying the suspect, so that they can be held accountable for their actions. Anyone who recognizes the individual is asked to call police.” – Constable Amanda Steed
