Handgun suspect sought in South Surrey incident

Man pointed a firearm at a young woman walking home from a friend's house

  • Dec. 30, 2014 2:00 p.m.

Surrey RCMP this week released a composite drawing and are asking for the public’s help to identify a male suspect in a Nov. 29 South Surrey incident in which a stranger approached a young woman and pointed a firearm at her.

An 18-year-old woman was walking home from a friend’s house in the vicinity of 152 Street and 20 Avenue at 11:30 p.m. when a man pointed a black handgun at her and told her not to run.

The woman, who had been wearing headphones at the time of the incident, removed them when she realized someone was talking to her. The man was standing near the entrance to a pathway on the south side of 20 Avenue, in the 15100-block.

The woman quickly walked away, and then ran south on 152 Street before returning home safely. Police attended the scene with a service dog but were unable to locate any evidence.

The suspect is described as South Asian, in his early 30s and approximately 5′ 8” to 5′ 9″, with short black hair and facial stubble. He was wearing a black trenchcoat, black shoes and may have been wearing jeans.

While police are continuing to interview business owners and residents and canvassing for video surveillance footage, they ask anyone with information who has not already spoken to them to call Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502,  or, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvecrime.ca
