Man charged with sex assault

Surrey's Timothy James Wyslouzil, 46, has been charged with several offenses related to a 2012 assault

A man has been arrested and charged in relation to a violent sex assault on a woman almost five years ago.

Late in the evening, June 2, 2012, a woman was attacked by a man in the 13300-block of 68 Avenue.

The stranger is alleged to have physically and sexually assaulted her while threatening to kill her.

After an extensive investigation, the Surrey RCMP Special Investigation Unit, Identification Section, found and arrested a suspect.

Timothy James Wyslouzil, 46, of Surrey, has now been charged with the following five counts; sexual assault using a weapon, choking and/or suffocating while committing a sexual assault, unlawful confinement, uttering threats and sexual assault causing bodily harm.

He is currently in custody on these charges.

“All complaints of sexual assault are treated very seriously and the victim’s welfare is paramount in investigations like this,” Surrey RCMP Cpl. Scotty Schumann said in a release. “The diligence of our officers in their thorough approach to this investigation resulted in a significant arrest that will hopefully improve the victim’s peace of mind and the community’s safety.”
