Police seeking public assistance to identify Indo-Canadian man in firearm pointing

Surrey RCMP is requesting the public’s assistance in identifying a suspect involved in an apparent firearm pointing incident approximately one month ago. 

On November 29th, 2014 at approximately 11:30pm, Surrey RCMP received a report of a weapons offence in the area of 152nd Street and 20th Avenue. Upon attendance, officers learned that an 18 year old female was walking home from a friend’s house in the area when an unknown male pointed a black handgun at her and told her not to run. The female quickly walked away and ran southbound on 152nd Street before returning to her residence. The female advised that she was wearing headphones at the time and took them off because she heard someone talking. She then observed the male near an entrance to a pathway approximately ten feet away (west of 15140 20th Avenue on the south side of 20th Avenue).

The suspect is described as a South Asian male, in his early 30’s, approximately 5’8”-5’9”, with short black hair and stubble on his face, wearing a black trench coat, black shoes, and possibly jeans.

Officers attended to the location along with a Police Service Dog but were unable to locate any evidence at scene. Officers continue to follow-up on all avenues of investigation including speaking with businesses and residents in the area and canvassing for any video surveillance.

Anyone with further information who has not already spoken to police is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvecrime.ca.
