Wednesday morning marked another short appearance in Surrey Provincial Court for the man accused of a brazen sexual assault on a South Surrey senior.
Stephen Thomas Morse appeared briefly by video, learning he was to return for another appearance on Dec. 17.
Publication bans prohibit disclosure of evidence presented during the proceedings.
Morse’s lawyer, Craig Sicotte, told Peace Arch News he was still waiting for disclosure on the file.
Morse, a Langley resident, has been in custody since Sept. 4, charged with aggravated sexual assault, forcible confinement, break-and-enter, robbery, disguise with intent and use of imitation firearm in connection with an Aug. 12 incident.
In announcing an arrest, police described the crime as “repulsive.” It happened in broad daylight, and prompted police to issue a community warning.
In an attempt to locate the perpetrator, investigators released security-camera images of a man using the ATM at the Brookswood RBC the afternoon of Aug. 12, in the 20000-block of 40 Avenue.
