Female youth sexually assaulted on North Vancouver trail

North Vancouver RCMP are warning the public after receiving a report Thursday, February 24, of a suspicious male who sexually assaulted a female youth on February 11, at approximately 5:30 p.m. on a trail in the Seymour Heights neighbourhood.

The youth was walking on a trail close to a bridge in Trillium Park near Seymour Heights Elementary School when a male approached her and groped her. She managed to fight off the male and flee.

The male is described as:

  • Caucasian
  • 5’8
  • 40’s
  • Greying hair
  • Brown eyes
  • Slim build


  • Blue jeans
  • Black baseball cap
  • Dark blue track jacket
  • Blue face mask
  • Walking with a small, white dog that was off-leash
  • RCMP are asking anyone with information about this incident to contact the North Vancouver RCMP at 604-985-1311 and ask for Cst. Bams. Anyone who wishes to provide information but who wants to remain anonymous can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

This is the second sexual assault reported in North Vancouver on a trail. We reported on another one about one week ago but involved a “Black or south Asian male” suspect.
