Surrey RCMP looking for suspicious male

Suspect grabbed a teen near Clayton Heights Secondary School.

Last month, a 14-year-old boy was heading back to Clayton Heights Secondary after lunch when he noticed he was being followed.

On Sept. 30 at about 11:45 a.m., the young teen was near Extra Foods in the 18700-block of Fraser Highway when he noticed the stranger, who approached and grabbed him briefly.

The teen pushed the attacker away and ran back to school.

The boy was uninjured.

The suspect is described as a Caucasian male in his late 50s, about 6’1” with a slim build who was wearing a black hoodie with the hood up and light blue jeans. He had a grey beard.

“Our investigators have consulted with other specialized sections and so far, we have found no other similar reported cases. We continue to investigate,” said Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet.  “While we believe this to be an isolated incident, we need to warn the public and ask for their assistance in reporting suspicious persons or activities”.

Anyone with information about this incident 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
