Richmond Mounties investigating alleged sex assault of young woman


Richmond Mounties are investigating the alleged sexual assault of a young woman.

Mounties say the 18-year-old woman was walking northbound along Ash Street toward General Currie Road on the evening of Oct. 7 when she was approached from behind by an unknown man.

The man allegedly pushed her to the ground near the Paulik Park Community Garden and forcibly sexually assaulted her, Richmond Mounties said in a statement. She managed to fight him off and escape.

In the days following the alleged assault, investigators have canvassed the neighbourhood and scrutinized video surveillance footage taken from the area.

Mounties describe the suspect as standing between 5-foot-10 and 5-foot-11 inches tall. He was wearing dark pants, dark dress shoes and a dark puffy jacket.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Richmond RCMP at 604-278-1212 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
