BC youth allegedly sexually assaulted by 2 men near school

Surrey Mounties are investigating a troubling incident this morning that has upped the police presence near a local school throughout the day.

According to a release, a youth was walking to school around 8:20 am when they were groped by two men who stepped out of the bushes.

“The youth was able to push the suspects away and run to safety,” the release explained.

The RCMP responded immediately and has been canvassing the area where it happened, near Queen Elizabeth Secondary School, all day in search of the suspects.

Both suspects are reportedly Caucasian, but police only have a detailed description of one of them at this time:

  • Mid 20s
  • Around 6’0”
  • Blonde hair
  • Goatee
  • Wearing blue shirt with white horizontal stripes and black shorts

“Incidents of groping are a form of sexual assault and Surrey RCMP takes these reports seriously,” said Cpl. Sarbit K. Sangha.

The Surrey RCMP’s Youth Unit is working closely with partners at the Surrey School District for this investigation.
