      Surrey RCMP are asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect in a sexual assault that took place last Thursday morning in the Newton area.

      Shortly before 5:30 a.m. on September 19, a woman was walking south on 124th Street (between 78th Avenue and 80th Avenue) when an unknown man jogged by.

      As he passed by her, he groped her. After that, he ran to a nearby vehicle and left the area.

      The suspect is described as a South Asian male who appears to be about 25 to 30 years old.

      He is 178 centimetres (five-feet, 10-inches) tall. At the time, he was wearing black jogging pants and a black hoodie (with the hood over his head).

      The suspect vehicle is a dark-coloured sedan (pictured in the above photo). The make and model haven’t been determined yet.

      Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or, to make an anonymous report, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
